Support for SNMP
If you are using a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) console, you
can configure the ProCurve Secure Router as an SNMP agent and enable
Entering ip snmp agent from the global configuration mode context enables
the SNMP agent functions on the router. You can set up the SNMP agent from
the global configuration mode by entering snmp-server. You will move to the
SNMP server configuration mode context, from which you can set the chassis
ID, contact information, management URL and URL label, source interface,
community name, and the host that is to receive the SNMP information. You
can also enable SNMP traps on individual interfaces.
MIBs for the ProCurve SR 7000dl series routers are available at the ProCurve
Web site. To download the MIBs, go to http://www.hp.com/rnd/software/

SafeMode is a CLI feature that allows you to perform configuration changes
without the fear of being disconnected from a Telnet or SSH session. Some
configuration changes can interrupt network connectivity. If you are
managing a router remotely via SSH or Telnet, you can inadvertently lose your
connection to the router.
For example, you may need to apply an ACL, but this ACL doesn't allow Telnet
or SSH traffic. Once you applied the ACL, you would be locked out of the
router. In order to fix the configuration that has locked you out, you would
need physical access to the router so that you could establish a console session
with it. SafeMode allows you to make configuration changes using Telnet or
SSH without worrying about losing your connection and being unable to
SafeMode requires you to periodically reset a reload timer. If the reload timer
runs out before you reset it, the Secure Router OS will assume that the current
running configuration has disrupted your connection to the router. It will save
the running-config to internal flash as "problem-config" and reboot the router.
Once the router has reloaded, it will display a reboot cause message and load
the currently saved startup-configuration file. The startup-config should allow
you to regain access to the router. You will then be able to review the saved
problem-config file and correct the setting that caused the disruption.
