Automatic config entry on ios switches using snmpv3

Unanswered Question
Jan 29th, 2008


I noticed the following behaviour on several switches running ios (e.g. WS-C4507R Version 12.2(20)EWA):

After configuring snmpv3 like

snmp-server user <v3-Username> <group> v3 auth md5 <authkey> priv des56 <privkey>

snmp-server group <group> v3 priv read view_All write view_All notify view_All access 1

snmp-server host traps version 3 priv <v3-Username>

ios adds the following line to the config:

snmp-server group <v3 Username> v3 auth notify *tv.FFFFFFFF.FFFFFFFF.FFFFFFFF.F

Does anybody know the reason for adding this line automatically?

Best Regards,


I have this problem too.
