Alarm Information
none.
Handling Process
The snmp-agent community complexity-check disable command disables the complexity check of a community name.

The undo snmp-agent community complexity-check disable command enables the complexity check of a community name.
By default, the complexity check is enabled for a community name.

The Switch has the following requirements for community name complexity:
• By default, the minimum length of a community name is six characters. The set password min-length command determines the minimum length of a community name.
• The community name includes at least two kinds of characters: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters (excluding ? and spaces.)

To ensure the security of SNMP community names, enable the complexity check for community names. If a community name fails the complexity check, the community name cannot be configured. The complexity check can also be disabled for a community name.

Root Cause
none.
Suggestions
