We have been asked to migrate all devices to SNMP V3.
I tried to test this out on a 2811 router but it is failing. All i need is to allow my NMS (solarwinds) to poll using snmpv3
Here is my config
snmp-server user test test v3 auth md5 test priv des56 test
snmp-server group test v3 priv
IS there anything else i need to do to use snmp v3 for polling
The SNMP USM spec says that passwords must be at least eight characters. So you should increase the length of your passwords (e.g. tester123). Also, you do not want to specify a context name in Solarwinds (i.e. leave this field blank). Contexts are not used for general polling. Other than that, this looks okay.
