Set node communication defaults

A number of variables can be set globally and applied to all new nodes added to SolarWinds NCM. You can override the defaults when adding nodes, however.

Though SolarWinds NCM supports SNMPv3 with AES-256, the SNMPWalk utility only supports AES-128. If you need to troubleshoot SNMP related to your node, use SNMPWalk to test the SNMPv3 setting for AES-128, and set it back to AES-256 after you have resolved the SNMP-related issue.

Set node communication default parameters

  1. Click Settings > All Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. Under Global Device Defaults, click Global Device Defaults.
  4. Enter the appropriate values, and click Submit.

Override default settings for a specific node

  1. Click Settings > Manage Nodes.
  2. Use the Group By list to filter the nodes.
  3. Select a node in the list, and click Edit Properties.
  4. Scroll down to NCM Properties.
  5. Edit login and communication information, and click Submit.
