Simple Network Management Protocol

Published: January 25, 2008

Updated: February 3, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol that provides the ability to monitor and communicate status information between a variety of hosts on a heterogeneous TCP/IP–based network.

The Windows Server 2008 implementation of SNMP supports computers running TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6. SNMP supports the use of IPv6 starting with Windows Vista. However, SNMP supports IPv6 only on computers running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista. This is because SNMP requires the updated protocol stack available in these operating systems for its IPv6 support.

SNMP in product Help for Windows Server 2008 is limited to information about controls on three tabs in the product: the SNMP Agent tab, the SNMP Security tab, and the SNMP Traps tab.

SNMP in product Help for Windows Server 2003 includes information about pre-installation, general tips, procedures for tasks, concepts, and troubleshooting.

The SNMP Technical Reference for Windows Server 2003 provides in-depth technical information about how SNMP works and the components that make it work. This content will not be updated for Windows Server 2008.
