setany -- management utility that retrieves and sets variables in an SNMP entity


setany [ -f defns_file ] entity_addr community_string
[ variable_name -<i/o/d/a/c/g/t/s/n> value ] ...


setany does a GET request to get the current values of the variables to be set, then performs a SET request on the variables. The arguments are the entity name or address in internet dot notation, the community string for access to the SNMP entity, and a triplet for each variable to be set consisting of: the variable name in dot notation, an ´i', 'o', 'd', 'a', 'c', 'g', 't', 's', or 'n' preceded by a dash to indicate if the variable's value is being given as an integer, an octet string (in hex notation), an object identifier (in dot notation), an IP address (in dot notation), a counter, a gauge, time-tick, a string, or null, followed by the value.

The optional argument -f is used to specify a file containing the mosy(ADMN) and post_mosy(ADMN) compiled list of object names and their numeric Object Identifiers, in addition to the objects in the standard MIB. This allows the user to dynamically augment the number of objects that can be recognized by the management utility.

For example:

setany suranet0 "ifAdminStatus.2" -i 3

This sets the administrative status of interface 2 to 3 (down).

setany -f cisco.objects cisco_box secure_comm tsMsgttyLine.0 -i -1

will cause the terminal server message to be sent to all the tty lines.

The actions that take place during a SET request are that a GET request is issued for the variable. The variable name returned from this request is used in the SET request.
