SNMP configuration disappearing

Hello,

 

I have added new SNMP IP in firewall via CLI  like add snmp traps receiver X.X.X.X version v2 community Y.Y.Y.Y but after sometimes its automatically disappearing the configuration from device.

 

Please let me if you have any idea about this.

Unlike the WebUI, when configuring via clish,  save config must be executed to make configuration changes persistent.
Otherwise they won’t be persistent.

after adding the new SNMP IP  obviously we have to save the configuration.

 

I have saved the configuration save config command.

 

then logged off and logged in Back 30 min later configuration will be disappeared.

If you've, in fact made these changes as you've said, there should be evidence of this in /var/log/messages.
Likewise, if someone is changing it back, there should be evidence there as well.

Also, when you issue the necessary configuration via clish, you should see it reflected in /etc/syslog.conf.
If you don't, then do an lsattr /etc/syslog.conf and see if the "i" flag is shown (immutable).
If it is, then any change you make in Gaia won't be reflected.
Then you can run chattr -i /etc/syslog.conf to remove it.

What about when you make the config change via clish?
Can you see that /etc/syslog.conf has changed?
Can you see those changes mentioned in /var/log/messages?
And when the change is reverted, do you see changes being undone?

Also, what version/JHF level is the gateway in question?

Phoneboy made a very good point...clish always requires entering "save config" after you are done configuring things. Without it, it wont save anything.
