Setting up default credentials is NOT required. You can simply configure some SNMP credentials in Discovery directly or through CWA, then Discovery will work.

Then for what purpose the primary credentials & secondary credentials & enable secret is used for.

while discovering some of the devices are unreacheable but actually they are reacheable from ur previous archives i have seen discovery issues that u have mentioned that cheked with SNMP for reacheability,by doing SNMPwalk or packet capture

Can i do a snmpwalk from my LMS 3.1 portal or advice me for any third party software for snmpwalk.

The other credentials are used for other applications. For example, the username and password credentials are used by RME to fetch and deploy device configurations and software images. The read-write community string is used by applications such as RME, Campus, and IPM.

You can do an SNMP Walk from Device Center.
