We are rolling out a SNMP monitor for our networking devices and servers.  Can someone tell me how to change the snmp community strings in Redhat 7.3?

Thanks!

I'll assume this is ucd-snmp now know as net-snmp, it should be in a file called snmpd.conf, I'm not sure where it would be on RH 7.3 but probably in /etc ;  You could run "locate snmpd.conf" if you have findutils installed.  After altering the file you need to restart the snmpd.

I know where the file is, but it seems cryptic to me.  Can you help me edit it?

look for "rocommunity" if it's the default install it should have "public" set as the community string.  rocommunity is for the read-only community string and rwcommunity is for the read-write community string.

If you can't find it look for public in the file or post your snmpd.conf (if you remove the comments it should be fairly short).

Thanks
