Disable Send Authentication Traps

Hi,

I'm trying to disable 'Send Authentication Traps' option from SNMP service. I'm going crazy as can't see any way of doing that through Windows GPO's.

It could be done making a custom adm file to create/modify the key in the registry (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\SNMP).

Does anybody know if I could disable that option via GPO's?. I know that GPO just modify registry keys but I'd rather not to create custom adm files even less to modify the registry in every single server.

Any help would be useful.

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

If it is not an option within the Computer Configuration of the GPO i'm afraid you will have to go with the adm creation.. If you are able to create your own ADM file there is no need to go to all machines and implement it there.

You could also insert a startup script into the GPO were your servers are that need this setting and then, within that startup script (no logon script, becuase then you'd still need to log on) call the reg key you exported, this should also do the trick.. This way you can always alter certain parts of the servers.. Still, it would be a workaround for creating a manual .adm file..

Hi rhandels,

but what you are suggesting to me it's already tested, I only wanted to know if it is possible to achieve the goal via GPO's.

Regards.

Yes and no, cause if you create your onw ADM it can be done using GPO, if not then not...
Hi,

I think the best option is to modify a custom adm file that I already had created for another issue.

Thank you.
