Configure SNMP v3

To configure SNMP v3:
  1. Go to System > SNMP.
  2. Click the SNMPv3 tab.
  3. Complete the configuration as described in SNMP v3.
  4. Save the configuration.

SNMP v3

Settings Guidelines
SNMP v3  
Name User name that the SNMP Manager uses to communicate with the SNMP Agent. After you initially save the configuration, you cannot edit the name.
Status Enable/disable the configuration.
Security Level
  • No Auth And No Privacy—Do not require authentication or encryption.
  • Auth But No Privacy—Authentication based on MD5 or SHA algorithms. Select an algorithm and specify a password.
  • Auth And Privacy—Authentication based on MD5 or SHA algorithms, and encryption based on AES or DES algorithms. Select an Auth Algorithm and specify an Auth Password; and select a Private Algorithm and specify a Private Password.
SNMP v3 Port Enter the port number on which the system listens for SNMP v3 queries from the SNMP managers. The default is 161.
Host  

IP Address

Enter the subnet address for the SNMP manager to be permitted to query the FortiADC system. SNMP managers have read-only access. You can add up to 8 SNMP managers to each community. To allow any IP address using this SNMP community name to query the FortiADC system, enter 0.0.0.0/0. For security best practice reasons, however, this is not recommended.

 

Test both traps and queries (assuming you have enabled both). Traps and queries typically occur on different port numbers, and therefore verifying one does not necessarily verify that the other is also functional.

To test queries, from your SNMP manager, query the FortiADC appliance.

To test traps, cause one of the events that should trigger a trap.
