Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System


snmp-server engineID

Configure the name for both the local and remote SNMP engines on the router.

snmp-server engineID [local engineID] [remote ip-address vrf vrf-name udp-port port-number engineID]

To return to the default, use the no snmp-server engineID [local engineID] [remote ip-address vrf vrf-name udp-port port-number engineID] command.

local engineID

Enter the keyword local followed by the engine ID number that identifies the copy of the SNMP on the local device.

Format (as specified in RFC 3411): 12 octets.
  • The first four octets are set to the private enterprise number.
  • The remaining eight octets are the MAC address of the chassis.
remote ip-address
Enter the keyword remote followed by the IP address that identifies the copy of the SNMP on the remote device.
vrf vrf-name
Enter the keyword vrf followed by the name of the VRF that is used to reach the device.
NOTE: Use this attribute to specify the VRF that is used by the SNMP engine to reach the device. If no VRF is specified, then the default VRF is used.
udp-port port-number engineID
Enter the keywords udp-port followed by the user datagram protocol (UDP) port number on the remote device. The range is from 0 to 65535. The default is 162.
As above.

Usage Information

Changing the value of the SNMP Engine ID has important side effects. A user’s password (entered on the command line) is converted to a message digest algorithm (MD5) or secure hash algorithm (SHA) security digest. This digest is based on both the password and the local Engine ID. The command line password is then destroyed, as required by RFC 2274. Because of this deletion, if the local value of the Engine ID changes, the security digests of SNMPv3 users is invalid and the users will have to be reconfigured.

For the remote Engine ID, the host IP and UDP port are the indexes to the command that are matched to either overwrite or remove the configuration.
