Not using the straight CLI. I've written a TCL script to do it provided your switch supports tclsh. Just run tclsh flash:snmp-context.tcl --help for details.

These messages could point to an SNMP configuration problem. If you are using SNMPv1/v2c, you cannot have an '@' in your community string. If you do, things like STP analysis and User Tracking will fail. If you are using SNMPv3, you must have switches that support SNMP contexts, and your SNMPv3 group must have access to those contexts.

You need to associate the group with each VLAN context. Run "show snmp context" and add a line like:

snmp-server group mygroup v3 auth ... context vlan-6

TCL support didn't come for the desktop switches until 12.2(40)SE. So, yes, you will have to do the configuration manually.
