Netvisor OS allows you to modify the SNMP Engine ID and retrieve previous SNMP agent information for a switch no longer in use. If you have to remove a switch from the network, you can modify the SNMP Engine ID to use the old SNMP Engine ID so Netvisor can query and maintain the same history records for the new switch.

Specify the 28 character unique ID for the SNMP engine.

Defaults   None

Access   CLI

History   Command introduced in Version 3.0.0.
