Products
SecureStack C3, C2, B3, B2, A2 

Changes
Implementing SNMPv3 management of a stackable switch.
Configuring stackable switches with the (e.g. NetSight) SNMP server remote engineID.
Issued the 'set snmp user...' command (e.g. 5390) to specify the remote engineID. 

Symptoms
CLI error message "Error, engine ID is not valid:  <engineID>" is generated. 

For example: 
B3(su)->set snmp user Myv3admin remote 811117e5807f4f1111d7f74f49 authentication md5 MyAuthPass privacy MyPrivPass
Error, engine ID is not valid: 811117e5807f4f1111d7f74f49
B3(su)-

Cause
With some products this is optional, but the SecureStacks expect the remote engineID to be entered with a colon (":") between each of its octets. 

Solution
Functions as Designed (FAD). 

Type the command to include delimiting colons embedded within the remote engineID. 

For example:
B3(su)->set snmp user Myv3admin remote 81:11:17:e5:80:7f:4f:11:11:d7:f7:4f:49 authentication md5 MyAuthPass privacy MyPrivPass
B3(su)->
