I would like to know whether is their any commercial switch (SNMP agent) which enable it's default manager IP address to be set/change via SNMP command. This is because when the primary NMS fail, the secondary NMS will come-up and starts to poll the devices. Isn't it better for it to also reconfigure all the devices default manager IP address to the new NMS as well. Most of the device I know of does not allow us to do it. ( only via telnet or configure 2 or more manager IP address into it). Is there a discussion on a standard MIB (e.g. MIB-II IP sub-tree) for this operation or via proprietary MIB.? Hope to hear from any of you. Note: Security issues is not discuss here.
