For security best practices typically I would only allow SNMP with RO (read only) access on network devices. Does XMC need write access to be allowed on Extreme switches for any functionality? These are all VOSS and EXOS switches. Thanks.

in addition to Mig's answer. If you used XMC only for monitoring and you don't use ExtremeControl, then it is sufficient to have read-only access via SNMP.
However, XMC also offers the possibility to change configuration on the switch. For example you can change the name of a switch. Here write access is necessary.
Basically it is recommended (XMC best practise) to allow write access via SNMP, but this should be done via SNMPv3.
