The SNMP service on the storage system must use only SNMPv3 or its successors.
SNMP Versions 1 and 2 are not considered secure. Without the strong authentication and privacy provided by the SNMP Version 3 User-based Security Model (USM), an attacker or other unauthorized users may gain access to detailed system management information and use the information to launch attacks against the system.
Configure the OS to use SNMPv3 by entering the command: cli% setsnmpmgr -snmpuser 3parsnmpuser -pw <password> -version 3 <IP address of SNMP manager>
Verify that SNMPv3 is enabled by entering the command: cli% showsnmpmgr HostIP Port SNMPVersion User <IP address of SNMP manager> 162 3 <username> If the SNMPVersion is not 3, this is a finding.
