RFC 1908 Coexistence between SNMPv1 and SNMPv2 January 1996

1. Introduction

The purpose of this document is to describe coexistence between version 2 of the Internet-standard Network Management Framework [1- 6], termed the SNMP version 2 framework (SNMPv2), and the original Internet-standard Network Management Framework (SNMPv1), which consists of these three documents:

STD 16, RFC 1155 [7] which defines the Structure of Management Information (SMI), the mechanisms used for describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

STD 16, RFC 1212 [8] which defines a more concise description mechanism, which is wholly consistent with the SMI.

STD 15, RFC 1157 [9] which defines the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), the protocol used for network access to managed objects.

2. Management Information

The SNMPv2 approach towards describing collections of managed objects is nearly a proper superset of the approach defined in the Internet- standard Network Management Framework. For example, both approaches use ASN.1 [10] as the basis for a formal descriptive notation. Indeed, one might note that the SNMPv2 approach largely codifies the existing practice for defining MIB modules, ba...
