This section covers the Cisco Nexus 3550-H Hydra's (formerly ExaLINK Hydra) support for SNMP v2c.

Show configuration

The current configuration for SNMP can be obtained by issuing the following command:

admin@EXALINK-HYDRA# sh snmp
Location: Somewhere over a rainbow
Contact: The Sys Admin <>

Community Access
--------- ------
public    ro

Configuring SNMP

Before SNMP can be used, the shared read community phrase should be set. This is shared between the Nexus 3550-H and the system making the SNMP requests.

To set the read community to public:

admin@EXALINK-HYDRA> config snmp-server community public
Added SNMP community "public"

The location of the Cisco Nexus 3550-F Fusion (formerly ExaLINK Fusion) can be set in the SNMP configuration. This is available to SNMP through the OID SNMPv2-MIB::sysLocation.0. Similarly, the configured contact details are available through SNMPv2-MIB::sysContact.0

admin@EXALINK-HYDRA> config snmp location "Somewhere over a rainbow"
Set sysLocation to "Somewhere over a rainbow"

admin@EXALINK-HYDRA> config snmp contact "The Sys Admin <>"
Set sysContact to "The Sys Admin <>"
