Hello serverfualt members,
I have researched this very question and have made the following discoveries:
Windows 2003 Supports: • SNMPv2x
Windows 2008 Supports: • SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c
Windows 2012 does not Support SNMP: • SNMP is deprecated. Instead, use the Common Information Model (CIM), which is supported by the WS-Management web services protocol and implemented as Windows Remote Management. • https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa384426(v=vs.85).aspx
Now, further research shows that it really "isn't" deprecated, you can still install it as a feature.
Because of security issues with any version prior to SNMP v3, our servers get flagged and it's something that we need to fix. So, having said all that, does Windows Server 2016 support SNMPv3.
Oh, and I also installed Windows Server 2016 in my test environment and SNMP is still available. However, I have been unable to find out whether it is the "Version 3" that everyone seems to be looking for.
If anyone can shed some light specifically on whether Windows Server 2016 supports v3, I'd great appreciate it as its clearly has not been deprecated.
