Hi Just wanted to know when SNMP has been enabled on the router and installed on the Win 2003 server DC which is as below, does the SNMP still function:?

Qns1.
- Win 2003 DC/Dns/Dhcp & SP2 as normal
- Host pc not on domain but connected to above via dhcp or does it have to join domain first?

Not sure what you're aiming at here, SNMP is not related to (AD) domains.
Could you elaborate?

I just mean't when configuring SNMP are there any considerations when a network maybe on a domain or not or anything that may need another entry to integrate into SNMP....!!?

I only started configuring 'SNMP' yesturday for the first time with commands just to enable it and hopefully see it in the 'Eventviewer' apparantely I cannot as yet so not sure what Im missing...

Ok, so you want SNMP traps to be sent from the router to the server (or the workstation) and show up in the eventlog of that machine (?)
You wouldn't need any domain membership for that.

Ok, had a look at that and posted something:
'The way I read this is that you still need a piece of software to manage/monitor SNMP (WebWatchBot in the above link). All you did now is enable SNMP on the devices, so they can send/receive it.'

And coming back to the original question, SNMP should work. There is no (AD) Domain required, just the correct community-string.

Hi erniebeek, Yes I did see that but for some reason ignored it as thought mean't something else.  Im currently downloading an eval copy of (WebWatchBot) as above as now..Just downloaded it so I will now install on my XP host pc and see what happens.

And thanks for answering my question about snmp and domains etc as not needed..as you suggest...!!!

appreciated!
