Issue/Introduction

We can't get the MAC address of management interface using SNMP command as follows:

$ snmpwalk -v2c -c [community name] [IP address of SSLVA] .1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6.1 = STRING: "00:00:00:00:00:00"
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6.2 = STRING: "00:00:00:00:00:00"
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6.3 = STRING: "00:00:00:00:00:00"
iso.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6.4 = STRING: "00:00:00:00:00:00"

Note: OID .1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.6 shows ifPhysAddress


 

Resolution

We can get it using the following SNMP command.
$ snmpwalk -v2c -c [community name] [IP address of SSLVA]  -On .1.3.6.1.6.3.10.2.1.1.0
.1.3.6.1.6.3.10.2.1.1.0 = Hex-STRING: 80 00 1F 88 03 00 15 4D 03 87 20

Note: OID .1.3.6.1.6.3.10.2.1.1.0 shows snmpEngineID 

Hex-STRING: 80 00 1F 88 03 xx xx xx xx xx xx
                         
80 00 1F 88 shows enterprise ID
03 shows MAC address scheme
xx xx xx xx xx xx shows MAC address of management interface


Also we can confirm it using this CLI command.
