We have a couple of 2 node cluster with a Witness VM on a separate host but I can not seem to find any documentation on how to enable SNMP on it.

Using the “ncli snmp add-user” command that works for normal CVM’s just throw me the error:
“Error: Cannot connect to Prism Gateway”

Any ideas?

Hi Tedevil,


You are not missing anything. CVMs/Prism are intended to be the central and only source of the cluster stats via SNMP. That includes the Witness VMs. Polling Witness VMs via SNMP is not supported at the moment.

Let me know if that helps or if you have further questions, please.
