I'm trying to model a cisco 2911 using SNMPv3 with authentication and encryption, however, it wont work.The config is exactly the same already running on an identical router (same IOS) but it fails to commuicate - SNMPv1 works fine:

SNMPv3 authpriv problem - Not in Time Windows

This error points to specifying a bad engine time when querying your device.  How are you doing the querying?  Are you using the same exact command line from the working device?  If so, you can't use the same engine ID, boots, and engine time.  Note: the way SNMPv3 typically works is that the first query will be without an engine ID, boots, or engine time.  The device will reply with a REPORT packet that contains the authoritative values.  The manager will then re-request the objects with the appropriate engine values.

If you're seeing repeated time window violations, you may have a bad SNMP engine cache on your manager.

SNMPv3 authpriv problem - Not in Time Windows

Hello - yes it has the same engine ID shown in sh snmp engine command - I see this can be changed using a local engine ID (see below), but what hex value should be used per device to make sure this is unique (I tried using a hex conversion of an IP on the device but it stated it needs 10 digits)?

snmp-server enigne local <10-digit-hex-value>

Is there a standard policy to follow?

Thanks

Did you change the engine ID originally?  The engine ID needs to be unique across all devices.  By default, this will be the case (unless you're seeing a bug).  You should never copy and paste the SNMP engine ID config from one device to another.  If you did this, configure the following:

no snmp-server

Then reload.  When the device reboots, reconfigure your SNMPv3 parameters WITHOUT changing the engine ID.  That should give you a unique value.

used a MAC address from an interface on the router as the snmp engine ID - all working - thanks.
