SNMP V3 AuthPriv configuration for NAC

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to configure SNMP V3 authpriv on a switch 2960 (12.2.53) to send mac notifications to a NAC Access Manager. But when "priv" is enabled on NAM, and a host is connected to a controlled OOB port, NAM does not change the port vlan to the configured authentication vlan as expected.

If I configure just the authentication on NAM, leaving PRIV as "No Priv"   everything works fine.

Any idea ?

Best Regards

Switch SNMP Config:

snmp-server community c2950_read RO

What is the CCA version you are running?

Worth to check if you are hittingDDTS CSCsv84296: "SNMPv3 traps from switch, is not interpreted by CAM if authpriv is used".

Hi Tiago,

Thanks for your answer. I'm running CAM 4.8.0.  On release notes for  CAM 4.5 and 4.7, the bug  CSCsv84296 is listed as corrected, but I think that the same problem could be hapenning on CAM 4.8.  I'll try to find more information. Thanks a lot for now.

Re: SNMP V3 AuthPriv configuration for NAC

It could be an IOS problem.

We're using NAC 4.8 and 3560 switches with IOS 12.2.50(SE5). We've configured SNMPv3 with SHA and 3DES without problems. Maybe you should try with that IOS version

Hi Eduardo,

Could you please post the SNMP configuration you are using on the switch ?

I'm goingo to download the ios version you are using to test.

Best regards.
