We would like change the snmp credential in all our devices (250 devices), How can we do this with Enterasys Netsight?

Thanks a lot.

This video can walk you through the process...

You can set this change on multiple devices. It is very dangerous if you push out a misconfiguration. I would suggest you try this on one device first to make sure you set the snmp passwords properly. You can then push the changes to all 250 devices. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact the GTAC for assistance.

Thanks Doug. we'll try it carefully.

Now we have another question with this point, How can change the login credential (cli- admin/password) in all our devices? Is this possible with Netsight too?

Thanks a lot.

This is an additional question to the original post that everyone could benefit from. Please reference the new topic here: Is is possible to change login credentials for all SNMP devices with Netsight?
