Does anyone know how, through Group Policies, I can set a Read/Write community string. A program that i use needs to have a Read/Write stringl. I for the life of me cannot figure out how to set this. When i set the community string via GPMC i get a Read Only community.
I have searched the registry for this setting, and this is what I have found. When you put a SNMP community string it creates an entry in the registry at HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetServicesSNMPParametersValidCommunities.
When you put in a Read Only Community, it creates the string in the registry with a Reg_Dword value of 4(Hex)/4(Decimal).
When you put in a Read/Write community, it creates the string in the registry with a Reg_Dword value of 10(Hex)/16(Decimal).
Now for the fun part, i set a Read/Write community string, before i applied the GPO, my program worked, and everything was great. Then, i applied the GPO, rebooted the system and the program stopped working. I checked the registry and the Reg_Dword was still set to 16, but it wasn’t working. (Removing the GPO fixed it though!!!!!)
I know i could just disable the GPO, but i have over 100 servers that i need to make this change to.
I have searched Google, Microsoft, ExpertsExchange, and have come up with nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
