snmpv3 incorrect community name

Netsight v6 is reporting SNMPv3 incorrect community name for switches in the deployment.

snmpv3 does not have a community name - nor is it configured in any other way than what is standard ??

odd - any advice ?

Dewald, is the switch being monitored Okay via Netsight? The icon is green?
Yes it is Mike. From netsight, the switch is functioning as expected - however we keep getting this error.

Okay. The switch is reporting that Something is talking to it with an incorrect community or username. A trace of the SNMP to the device may assist in figuring out if it is some sort of malformed packet issue. It's a trap coming from those addresses. So I think it is a problem with what Netsight is doing to monitor the switches, or some other entity.
