Can I switch off SNMP on QVS?

QVS is listening on port 161 SNMP and is causing issues with our network.

There is an option to turn off SMNP on the QVS servers but what would that do?

Can I turn it off, how does that effect QV?

Re: Can I switch off SNMP on QVS?

Hi Daniel,

To turn SNMP off you need to edit the QVS settings.ini file (C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer) and under [Settings 7] add EnableSNMP=0

Then in QVDistributionService.exe.config (C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service) you will need to set <add key="EnableSNMP" value="false" /> to false if it is set to true.

Bill,

Thanks for the response.... If I DO turn off SNMP, what if any impact will it have to QVS or my users?

Hey Bill,

    Do you know if we can switch the port # from 161 to another port?

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes, you need to at SNMPPORT=  with the port you want to use under the [Settings 7] in the QVS settings.ini file.
