we have Summit x460 ( patch1-11) and Netsight, we successfully added the x460 to netsight but log shows in switch regarding SNMP ( Login failed through SNMPv3 - wrong digest).

we used SNMPv3 default credentials,
MD5 - "snmpauthcred"
DES - "snmpprivcred"

Hi Marlon,

Are you using IPv6 SNMP server to query the switch?
Also please check if you are using the correct credentials as there are chances of this log getting recorded incase of a wrong credential being used.
