Starting with VMware Cloud Director 10.2.2, you can display the SNMP settings, for example, UDP port, communities, V3 users, engine ID, authorization and privacy protocols, and so on.


Configure the VMware Cloud Director appliance for SNMP v1 and v2c or SNMP v3.


  1. Log in to the appliance shell as a user with administrative privileges.
  2. To display the SNMP settings, run the following command.
    vicfg-snmp --show

Example: Sample vicfg-snmp --show Output

The sample output shows that the SNMP agent is enabled for a V3 user with an authorization hash and a privacy hash.
