Missing SNMP in Windows 10

Today I had to realize that Windows 10 does not provide SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) in the Windows features anymore. In my case it’s Windows 10 Pro 1909.

After a short research I found that this behavior exists since version 1803. Fortunately SNMP can be installed later via the Powershell.
IMPORTANT: The administrator needs access to the internet!

Start Powershell as administrator and execute the following command:

Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name "SNMP.Client~~~~

Then use the following command to verify that SNMP has been installed correctly:

Get-WindowsCapability -Online -Name "SNMP*"

Powershell - Add-WindowsCapability

After installation, please note that only the SNMP service has been installed, in which SNMP can be configured as usual. The option in the Windows features is still not available.
