Issue:
Every time I try to apply a base policy using VAIM I get "Invalid - No SNMP Settings" message as the configuration status.

Cause:
This message indicates one of the following problems:
  1. The communities selected are configured with ports different than the current agent listening port. 
  2. "Custom Selection" is checked, but there are no communities selected under "Default Communities"
In the example below, the above error is generated if this policy is deployed to a SystemEDGE agent configured to run on port 161.

Resolution:
Make sure the correct Default Communities are selected which match the port configuration of the target SystemEDGE hosts.
