PC-PT T105 consider as SNMP-Manager

Technical Report (Practical assignment)

You need configure SNMP by using packet tracer with the below information: Topology:

  1. Build the Network and Configure Basic Device Settings
  2. Configure SNMP Manager and Agents

PC-PT T105 consider as SNMP-Manager

Other devices which are necessary for monitor consider as SNMP-Agents (routers and switch)

Routers, the SNMP community string is ciscoRouter, with read-only privileges.

Switches, the SNMP community string is ciscoSwitches, with write-read-only privileges

  1. Discover SNMP agents.

Discover which interfaces are up and which are down (Record the OID code numbers and their corresponding message translations)

4. ChangeSNMPagentsconfiguration

Change the name of switch S105 to bridge

Change the switch S104 interface mode from up to down Which information could not gather?

Define a SNMP community string is ciscoR, with write-read-only privileges in the R105

Change the slot1 mode to down Which information could not gather?

Instructions/Guide:

  • Please use the network as given in “Technical Report (Practical assignment).pdf”.
  • First of all design, plan and draw the network you will be using for this report (already given)
  • How the devices will be connected in that network, how many devices will there be, assign the IP addresses according to given networks.
  • Which devices will be SNMP agents, which will be SNMP managing entities.
  • What objects will be managed. What will be their OIDs, what will be their description, what will be their purpose. Try to use as many object as possible. You can refer to MIB tree to see the details of objects which can be managed.
  • Implement the planned network on CISCO Packet tracer, configure the network with IP addresses, and configure the SNMP on routers or devices you want as SNMP managing entities.
  • Perform the tasks as required in the assignment to demonstrate the use of snmp set.
  • Explain how you configured them, what problems you faced and how you resolved them.
  • Use screenshots – and use captions to highlight what is happening in each SS

The Technical report (700 to 1000 words) shows how the SNMP protocol can be useful through for monitoring a network.  it should contain the following:

  1. Title
  • Clearly and concisely informs the reader of the practical report topic 
  1. Introduction  (Approx. word count: 200)    
  • Provides background information needed for the reader to understand the context and purpose of the experiment.
  • What is the objective of this report?
  • What information is included?
  • What are the key technical aspects of the report?
  1. Assumptions
  • Here, write any assumptions made in the report.
  1. Discussion (Approx. word count: 300)

Need for SNMP:

SNMP implementation details:

Network Topology:

Include details about network topology (as given ). Number of network devices being managed.

SNMP Organizational model:

SNMP Communication Model:

SNMP Managing Entities:

IP Addressing Table:

IP address allocation to the devices in the network (as given in the assessment description documents).

Object Identifier (OID) Table:

List the details of the objects which are being managed on related agents. Details of object which are being managed (OID, Description, Names, etc) on each of the devices on the network.

  • explain what was done to achieve the goals. Includes screenshots of configurations.
  1. Results (Approx. word count: 300)
  • Present the findings of the experiment.  If you use a figure, they should have captured with clarifying the description.
  • Interprets the findings, and places them in the context of background information.
  • Tools, techniques and configurations used to set up SNMP on agents and managers.
  • Packet tracer configuration screenshots.
  1. Problems Experienced and Solutions to Resolve them
  • What problems you faced during this project?
  • What were some of the solutions you tried.
  • Which solutions worked and which did not work.
  1. Conclusion (Approx. word count: 100)
  • Summarises findings and interpretations.
  • Key findings, outcomes and learning experience from this activity.
  1. References
  • Presents the sources of information used in the report.

STEPS SUMMARY:

  • Build the Network and Configure Basic Device Settings (IP , routing)
  • Configure SNMP Manager and Agents (At least 6 screen shots showing the CLI commands to configure SNMP on 6 devices)
    • PC-PT T105 consider as SNMP-Manager
    • Other devices which are necessary for monitor consider as SNMP-Agents (routers and switch) (3 switches 3 routers – 6 agents in total)
    • Routers, the SNMP community string is ciscoRouter, with read-only privileges
    • Switches, the SNMP community string is ciscoSwitches, with write-read-only privileges
  • Discover which interfaces are up and which are down (Record the OID code numbers and their corresponding message translations) (At least 6 screen shots
  • Change SNMP agents configuration
    • Change the name of switch S105 to “YOURNAME” e.g. Ahsan
    • Change the switch S104 interface mode from up to down – what information you can not gather?
    • Define SNMP community string ciscoR, with write-read-only privileges in the R105
    • Change the slot1 mode to down – what information you can not gather?
