Symantec Encryption Management Server (SEMS - formerly known as PGP Universal Server) allows you to use SNMP to monitor the condition of your server as well as the status of encrypted and decrypted messages. SEMS provides custom MIBs that are available for download via the administrative interface.
To test SNMP functionality and see if it is enabled from the backend, run the following:
Symantec Encryption Management Server 3.3.1 or previous:
snmpwalk -v 1 SEMS-IP-Address public system
This command will confirm that v1 is enabled and working. If this does not work, a "timeout" response will be displayed. Confirm SNMP is enabled on the server and that the sytnax is correct, including IP address of SEMS and try again.
Symantec Encryption Management Server 3.3.2 and above:
SNMP v3 is supported on this version, which requires a username and password to be configured on the SEMS. If this has not been done, please add this first and try the following command where username is "snmpuser" and password s 1234ABCD and IP address of 10.1.1.211:
snmpwalk -v 3 -l authNoPriv -a SHA -A 1234ABCD -u snmpuser 10.1.1.211
If the above command does not work, ensure SNMP is enabled, and that the syntax is correct, including username, password and IP address.
