Configuration Logic

  1. Configure a Huawei switch.
    1. Configure SNMP parameters to ensure that SolarWinds can communicate with the switch.
    2. Configure Telnet parameters to ensure that SolarWinds can log in to the switch.
  2. Add a single switch to SolarWinds.


  1. Configure a Huawei switch.
    1. Configure SNMP parameters.

      <HUAWEI> system-view
      [HUAWEI] sysname S5720HI-1
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent sys-info version v2c   //Allow SolarWinds to communicate with the switch using SNMPv2c.
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent community write cipher Huawei@2018   //Set the SNMPv2c community name to Huawei@2018.
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent trap enable   //Enable the SNMP trap function of all modules to send traps to SolarWinds.
      Warning: All switches of SNMP trap/notification will be open. Continue? [Y/N]:y
      [S5720HI-1] snmp-agent target-host trap address udp-domain params securityname cipher Huawei@2018   //Configure the switch to send traps to SolarWinds.

      You can run the display snmp-agent trap [ feature-name feature-name ] all command to check the status of the SNMP trap function of a specified module or all modules. If you want to enable the switch to send traps of a specified module to SolarWinds, run the snmp-agent trap enable feature-name feature-name [ trap-name trap-name ] command to enable the SNMP trap function of this module, instead of running the snmp-agent trap enable command.

    2. Configure Telnet parameters.

      [S5720HI-1] user-interface maximum-vty 15   //Configure the maximum number of users that can remotely log in to the switch.
      [S5720HI-1] user-interface vty 0 14
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] authentication-mode aaa   //Set the user authentication mode to AAA, that is, user name and password authentication.
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] protocol inbound telnet   //Allow SolarWinds to log in to the switch using Telnet.
      [S5720HI-1-ui-vty0-14] quit
      [S5720HI-1] aaa
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei password cipher Huawei@123   //Configure the user name and password.
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei privilege level 15   //Set the user level to 15 (highest).
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] local-user huawei service-type telnet   //Allow the user to log in to the switch using Telnet.
      [S5720HI-1-aaa] quit

  2. Add a single switch (node) to SolarWinds.
    1. Log in to SolarWinds using the administrator account.
    2. Click SETTINGS > Manage Nodes. Then click ADD NODE.
    3. On the DEFINE NODE tab page, configure node information.

      1. Set the node name or IP address.

      2. Select a polling method and set polling parameters. You can click TEST to check whether SolarWinds can communicate with the node using this method. After the test, click Next.


        The SNMP parameters configured on SolarWinds must be the same as those on the switch. Otherwise, SolarWinds cannot communicate with the switch.

    4. On the CHOOSE RESOURCES tab page, select statistics and resources to be monitored, and then click Next.

    5. Adjust configurations on the ADD POLLERS tab page if needed. For details, see the SolarWinds product documentation.
    6. On the CHANGE PROPERTIES tab page, review and set node properties.

      1. In the Polling area, you can adjust the intervals for updating the node status, collecting statistics, and polling topology information.

      2. If you need to adjust trap thresholds for the CPU load, memory usage, response time, or percent packet loss, select Override Orion General Thresholds and set values for the Warning or Critical level.

      3. Add the node to SolarWinds NCM. If you need to manage the node using SolarWinds NCM (for example, backing up or restoring configurations of the node), select Yes in the drop-down list of Manage Node(s) with NCM. Create a new credential profile or select an existing credential profile. Ensure that the credentials under Connection Profile are the same as the SSH/Telnet parameter settings on the switch. Otherwise, SolarWinds NCM cannot manage the switch. You can click TEST to test the connectivity between the switch and SolarWinds NCM.

      4. Click OK, ADD NODE. The node is added. In the node list, Status of the node is displayed as Node status is Up.
