I can't find a 15.3 command guide but you could just try it on the CLI - if the command is available it should work.

Support for 3DES and AES was added in ExtremeXOS 12.3. You can find this information under the configure snmpv3 add user command description in the Command reference guide: http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/exos_commands/EXOS_21_1/Preface/c_introduction.shtml

Hello Weda

Yes it does. Here's the information from the user guide

Users are created by specifying a user name. Depending on whether the user will be using
authentication and/or privacy, you would also specify an authentication protocol ( RSA Data Security,
Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm or SHA) with password or key, and/or privacy (DES, 3DES, AES)password or key.
Before using the AES, 3DES users, you must install the SSH module and restart the snmpMaster
process. Refer to Installing a Modular Software Package on page 1629 for information on installing the SSH module.

Hi,

in EXOS version 15.3.5.2, AES is supported for SNMPv3 privacy (this is in use one my network). It should be available in your version of EXOS as well, the command reference says:

Support for 3DES and AES was added in ExtremeXOS 12.3.

Thanks,
Erik

Here's the link to the Concepts Guide (http://extrcdn.extremenetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/EXOSReference_bookmap.pdf). Older docs are moved to "Archive" so they are still readily available.
