Error: Encrypted passwords must be in hex format

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.2(1)

Device Manager Version 5.2(4)

What am I doing wrong in configuration SNMP v3 in ASA-5505 .

System image file is "disk0:/asa821-k8.bin"

Wenn I try to enter command I get error.

snmp-server user snmp_user snmp_group v3 encrypted auth md5 1CF977871 priv des 1CF977871

Error: Encrypted passwords must be in hex format

Re: Error: Encrypted passwords must be in hex format

Remove the encrypted keyword. This is telling the ASA you will be entering encrypted passwords (this does not remove SNMP encryption).

Your command should be-

snmp-server user snmp_user snmp_group v3 auth md5 1CF977871 priv des 1CF977871

In the config you should see it converted to HEX.

Hope that helps.
