I looked at the Nexus config guide for SNMPv3 and looks just like IOS. Check the link below, usually there is a mis-config in NCM.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the link but NX0S doesn't have that view command. I'm going to try solarwinds support and see if they have anyting.

Take a look the SNMP privacy(encryption) settings. They have to be enabled globally.

I believe that by default, it's Auth only, not AuthPriv.

But also be careful, because NXOS creates a AAA user when you create an SNMPv3 user.
