Error: Informational - System: Detected an unauthorized user attempting to access the SNMP interface

Updated February 17, 2017

Overview

Email alerts from UPS devices indicate unexpected SNMP traffic from your primary Orion platform server. The following error is displayed:

Informational - System: Detected an unauthorized user attempting to access the SNMP interface from (ip address of our primary Orion server)

Environment

  • All IPAM versions
  • All NPM versions

Cause 

IPAM may be scanning subnets on your networks and possible old SNMP strings are used.

 

Resolution

To resolve this, go to Settings > IPAM Settings > SNMP Credentials and look for old or not working SNMP strings.

Also, check any scheduled network discoveries that may have old SNMP strings in it.
