SNMP V3 and Ciscoworks 2.6

Unanswered Question

Hi,

I'm having a problem moving from SNMP v2 to SNMP v3 on our Cisco 3560 switches to talk to Ciscoworks LMS 2.6.



I've entered the commands below into the switch:


snmp-server view campus mib-2 included

snmp-server group groupname v3 auth read campus write campus

snmp-server user Username groupname v3 auth md5 password

snmp-server user Username groupname v3

snmp-server view campus mib-2 included

snmp-server trap-source VlanXXX

snmp-server location London building number street floor ID

snmp-server chassis-id switchhostname



When I try a credentials check from Works I get the following error in the credential verification report under SNMP v3:


Setting v3 Param mode to authNoPriv. querying sysLocation.obtained exception while g/setting sysLocation com.cisco.nm.lib.snmp.lib.SnmpException


Any ideas or pointers how I can investigate the cause of this?


Thanks

JC

If the configs are as shown, the second line probably overrides the previous one, so user Username has a blank password:


snmp-server user Username groupname v3 auth md5 password

snmp-server user Username groupname v3
