If a host is specified in A1, the computer accepts SNMP requests only from that host. You can specify either the host computer name or the IP address for the host. It is recommended that Host be used as the host computer name.

You can use this setting in core installations of Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012, by enabling SNMP-SC in the Windows Foundation package.
