I am looking at deploying SNMP Settings for windows servers via Group Policy and have an administrative template prepared. However I am noting strange behaviour when applying the policy.
Two Community strings are created, with different permissions. ie:
MYCOMMUNITY - READ ONLY MYCOMMUNITY - READ CREATE
The Windows Registry also shows two values being created in
HKLM\Software\Policies\SNMP\Parameters\ValidCommunities NAME TYPE DATA 1 REG_SZ MYCOMMUNITY MYCOMMUNITY REG_DWORD 0x00000010 (16)
It is the latter of these two registry values that generates the READ CREATE community that I want, yet I seem to be unable to stop the first string entry from being generated.
My question is Whether READ CREATE Permissions will take precedence over READ ONLY permissions, or will there be "Random" behaviour with this configuration?
