In Windows 7 you can go into 'Computer Management', select 'Services' on the left pane, then double click 'SNMP Service' in the list on the right pane. Select the 'Security' tab and you will see a list of 'Accepted community name'. If you've never touched it before this list will be empty. Add a new string into the list. If the list is not empty then you can use any string from that list for your community string."
I did go into my 32 bit Windows and created a community name AD023 and put the same name in SolarWinds Real-Time Bandwidth Monitor. However, I get Credential Test Failed.
What is my next step?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you tell which option was choosen from the two listed ?
Accept SNMP packets from any host or Accept SNMP packets from these hosts
You should find this option when enabling SNMP Service on your machine.
Yes, that was also necessary to add the community name in the Security tab. As far as community name in the test, I do have the community name in Solarwinds Real-time Bandwidth Monitor if that is what you meant.
I added the community name I put into Windows 7 SNMP trap tab into the Security Accepted Community names under community. I select Rights to be Read Write.
Thanks. I am seeing activity now.
Was the right selection correct? Was SNMP Trap service need to be running?
The next problem is how do I fix the “Counter refresh time is slower than the polling interval”?
In the SolarWinds Real-Time Bandwidth Monitor, I did find in Settings Polling interval (ms). It was 5000 and I lower that to 500 which was the lowest allowed. The problem did not clear. Where is the counter refresh?
