Configuring security settings

You can enable SSH to allow the Quest KACE Technical Support team to access your appliance for remote support. Other security settings include enabling SNMP to allow remote monitoring, and enabling Offboard Database Access to allow the appliance database to be available to external programs, which can be useful for reporting. Enabling SSL provides a secure web browser to run the KACE SDA.

Enable SNMP monitoring

Enable SNMP monitoring

The SNMP agent on the KACE SDA enables remote monitoring of the appliance.

The internal SNMP agent uses the standard UDP port 161 and cannot be configured using TRAP and INFORM methods. If you have a Master SNMP agent configured on a different device, it can send GET, GETNEXT, and GETBULK requests to the KACE SDA and have the appliance return the requested information.

Click Enable SNMP Monitoring to display the SNMP Community String field.
NOTE: In versions prior to 7.0, the community string is set to public by default. If you upgrade from a pre-7.0 version, and SNMP monitoring is disabled, the community string changes from public to KaceSDA. If SNMP monitoring is enabled, the community string stays set to public, you should update it to prevent security issues. Warnings appear on the Dashboard and on the Security Settings page, alerting you to update the community string.
