  • 1.  Modify port Vlan ID with PySnmp

    Posted 07-03-2017 05:32
    Hi, im trying to modify the vlan id of port 24 on slot 2 (2:24) which as the ifindex of 152 according to snmpGet. I have been reading the documentation of PySnmp and from my point of view it is a bit vague, probably because i dont have yet a deep knowledge of programming and also on how SNMP is structured.

    Using the script provided from pysnmp documentation im unable to configure port 2:24 vlan ID. Im getting the following error:

    pysnmp.smi.error.SmiError: No symbol SNMPv2-SMI::mib- at [/code]my code:

    from pysnmp.hlapi import *
    g = setCmd(SnmpEngine(),
    UdpTransportTarget(MyIP, 161)),
    ObjectType(ObjectIdentity('SNMPv2-SMI', 'mib-', 152), '201'))
    Can someone help me?

    It seems pysnmp cannot find the mib, try using the oid. Below an example with a get.

    def SNMPGet(oid,host,community):
    errorIndication, errorStatus, errorIndex, varBinds = cmdGen.getCmd(
    cmdgen.UdpTransportTarget((host, 161)),

    # Check for errors and print out results
    if errorIndication:
    if errorStatus:
    print('%s at %s' % (
    errorIndex and varBinds[int(errorIndex)-1] or '?'
    for name, val in varBinds:
    return val.prettyPrint()

    Hi, Oscar. Hope you are doing well, thanks for the reply. I was finally able to set the vlan Id via pySNMP with a different piece of code.
    from pysnmp.entity.rfc3413.oneliner import cmdgen
    from pysnmp.proto import rfc1902
    errorIndication, errorStatus, errorIndex, varBinds = cmdgen.CommandGenerator().setCmd(
    cmdgen.CommunityData('my-agent', My_Community, 1),
    cmdgen.UdpTransportTarget(('', 161)),
    ((1,3,6,1,2,1,17,7,1,4,5,1,1,1), rfc1902.Gauge32('201'))
    print errorIndication
    print errorStatus [/code]output form the switch:

    * (pacman) EXOS-VM.36 # sh port 1 vid
    Port /Tagged VID(s)
    -------- -------- ------------------------------------------------------------
    1 Untagged 201

    Thanks for trying to help.
