BMC SNMP Agent Default Community Name (public)

Nessus security scans is showing the following vulnerability:  BMC SNMP Agent Default Community Name (public)

I'm having trouble finding where to change the BMC community name on a Dell server.  Any help would be appreciated.

It’s in idrac, SNMP settings, and in two places, depends on your version, but probably settings-network-services and also settings-services-snmp agent

Hello and thanks for posting.  I checked the iDRAC settings on this server and I had the community string changed in both places.  Nessus is showing this vulnerability for port 8161.  If I check resource monitor, core.service.exe is what is using this port.  This appears to be AppAssure.  Any ideas on where to change this string in AppAssure?

Never done this and it probably depends on the version but here are the instructions from quest
