On Solaris 10 I see this string on some servers

system-group-read-community     12Cme4iT

and other servers have
rocommunity  12Cme4iT


I am trying to find out if one can be replaced with the other and more or less do they indicate
the same type of access ? Please elaborate.

Is this within a stock SNMPd.conf or is it for a proprieterry SNMP agent i.e. CA's sysedge, etc...
Do all the servers you are looking at have the same SNMP agent?

The "rocommunity" option is used to give read-only access to the entire MIB.  I believe "system-group-read-community" gives read-only access to just system group information (sysContact, sysLocation, sysDescr, etc.)"

per cycotr0n's comment:
when you run snmpwalk -v 2 -c '12Cme4iT' system1 and then the same for system2.
This way you can see what information one provides versus the other.
