I am looking to script the installation of SNMP on a windows server 2012 R2. I am running the following:

Add-windowsfeature SNMP-Service
Add-windowsfeature RSAT-SNMP

but I want to use an answer file to also configure the SNMP traps and security. Does anyone have a sample answer file that they can share? Not sure what needs to be in it and how to use it.

If not an answer file, maybe an example of some powershell commands to configure SNMP once installed? I am looking to configure the agents, traps and security tabs.

Hi,

I suggest to use Solarwinds FREE SNMP Enabler For Windows witch you can download here http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/snmp-enabler-for-windows/enable-snmp.aspx

This can automate SNMP service Install and SNMP parameters configuration, but recently tested for Win2012 R2 I could'nt install the service but of course you can use it to configure community and security with result output.

Good luck.

Hi,

For SNMP service install and start, for sur the tools I syggested can't do this, if you download it and install it you can figure out that only Win2008 option can be found in the setup files path configuration.

But for the second part of your need, it will let you configure community string and security rules in a quick way.

Regards.

Because I am looking to script the install using powershell, not using a third party tool. Sorry.
