SNMP credentials

The SNMP Credentials page displays a list of all the SNMP credentials that are defined for your network. Community strings are displayed for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c credentials, and the User and Context are displayed for SNMPv3 credentials.

The default SolarWinds Orion community strings for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c devices are public and private.

Make sure the most frequently used credentials are on the top of the list to make the discovery faster.

Add SNMP credentials

  1. From the Network Sonar Wizard, click Add New Credential.
  2. Select the SNMP Version of your new credential, provide the details, and then click Add.

The new credentials will be used in the Discovery Wizard, and are stored for further use.
