snmp v3 configuration on 1800 series for Nagios v 3.2.2

Hi,

Anybody have idea how to configure snmp v3 in 1800 series routers with Nagios configured for monitoring? Can we keep the community name if keep v3 running? I have configured snmp v3 as per the manual. But if I remove the v2 community name it stop responding? Please can I get the complete example configuration of SNMP v3 on cisco routers or switches with encription enabled?

Thanks,

Baby

Note: Configuring engineID, views, hosts, and proxies is optional

snmp-server engineID local engineID-string

snmp-server group    groupname v3 {auth | noauth | priv}

            [read readview]

            [write writeview]

            [notify notifyview]

Re: snmp v3 configuration on 1800 series for Nagios v 3.2.2

Here is a snippet from RFC 3414

   The User-based Security Model prescribes that, if authentication is
   used, then the complete message is checked for integrity in the
   authentication module.

   For a message to be authenticated, it needs to pass authentication
   check by the authentication module and the timeliness check which is
   a fixed part of this User-based Security model.


If you are interested in learning more then the following may be of interest:


RFC 3413

RFC 3414
RFC 3415

RFC 3584

Thanks.

Re: snmp v3 configuration on 1800 series for Nagios v 3.2.2

Thank you!

Tried this configuration with Solarwinds tool and it works. Not added SNMP community name. Just wanted to know why the 'snmp-server community' in picture when we use snmp v3? And how to verify DES/AES inplace? (At present I am not enabled DES/AES since the IOS ver not supporting this)

Thanks,

Baby
