How would I find and/or configure a "read-only" SNMP community string on a Windows 2003 Enterprise server?  From what I already understand I know that I'll need the original WIndows disk.

Is SNMP installed and running?

If it is then from  the services MMC select snmp open the service select the security tab and set the community string and set it to Read Only.

First check to see if SNMP is already installed.

Go to start, RUN and type "services.msc"

Scroll down the list of services and you should see a service called SNMP service. If it is not there then you will need to install it from the install CD. Here is a link that shows you how to install and configure SNMP

To configure SNMP double click the SNMP service and go to the Security tab and enter a Community string and select read-only. Then click add then apply.

Restart the SNMP service and you are good to go. Just make sure the community string you configured is the same on your polling device.

Thanks guys. I was confusing the creation of a string with one I needed to set up my NMS. I followed through and ran right into it.
