<Catalyst 6509 log message>

"Aug 29 11:04:54: %SNMP-3-AUTHFAIL: Authentication failure for SNMP req from host 10.168.82.205

Aug 29 11:53:43: %SNMP-3-AUTHFAIL: Authentication failure for SNMP req from host 10.168.106.95 "

I Can find it to cisco website

It is defined below

" %SNMP-3-AUTHFAIL : Authentication failure for SNMP req from host [dec].[dec].[dec].[dec]

Explanation An SNMP request was sent by the host at the address [dec].[dec].[dec].[dec], but the request PDU was not properly authenticated.

Recommended Action Make sure that the community and user name that are used in the SNMP request from the remote host have been configured on the router. "

Is that the only way?

maybe, cause IOS ver?

please, return message!!!

Re: log message

Hello,

The SNMP manager is using an incorrect community password to query the SNMP agent that on your Catalyst 6509.

I can see that multiple managers fail to authenticate with your switch. Please check your configuration to see if the password is consistent with your NMS configuration.

#show running-config | include snmp-server
