Hello, 

Is there a way to create a snmp v3 user, that has read-only permissions, on a C5210  controller?  Thanks.

The IdentiFi must be configured for SNMPv3 and the Read-Only functionality must be configuresd on the SNMP Application.

Thanks John.  We already have the snmpv3 user working correctly on the controller, but the user has full permissions.

Is there no way to setup snmp groups within cli on the controller?  I've never heard of setting up snmp permissions on the client application side.  Thanks much.

Joshua,
You have to configure a user name account on the controller.
You then have to give that account read-only permission on the SNMP Application
The SNMP app will then have access to the controller, but based on privileges, will be allowed various permissions.  You should be able to configure accounts on the SNMP app for SU, RW, and RO functionality/access.

Joshua,

Side Note:  You can configure multiple accounts on the controller so that you have super user rights while less important people may only have read-only rights.
Thanks,
