Be sure your community name is not "public" or set automatic start to *NO if you don't have anything configured to monitor SNMP alerts being sent

Subject: Vulnerabiltiy scan result - The remote SNMP server replies to the following default community string : public
1) I recently received this vulnerability scan from our corporate security admin.
The remote SNMP server replies to the following default community string : public
Solution: Disable the SNMP service on the remote host if you do not use it.
Either filter incoming UDP packets going to this port, or change the default community string.
I'm not sure what exactly I should be looking at, possibly disabling.
How do I know if being used?
1. Configure SNMP agent
2) Could a previous i5/OS upgrade have removed a community I had setup other than the default of public.
I remember setting one up back in 2008, entry is now gone, both LPARs.
