I am trying to figure out what the snmp community string is on the ASA 5515x. It has snmp community configured. But it has been hidden by *****. Is there a way to find at out? Thanks

The command has been changed from

snmp-server community text


snmp-server community community-string

The text argument was changed to the community-string argument.

This was an enhancement on the command to provide better security.

I hope this helps.

try to make "copy system:running-config ftp://user:password@yourftpserver" and then you can read that config file without *

The following command will show the hidden key:

more system:running-config | in snmp
