SNMP v3 on ERS4950GTS-PWR+ / Software 7.8.1.055

Hello,

we are trying to integrate ERS4950GTS-PWR+ / Software 7.8.1.055 via snmp v3 to XMC 8.5.0.169 with no luck.

Our snmp v3 configuration is probably incomplete / wrong and maybe we are just too dim.

Anyone out there who can post the config lines needed to get snmp v3 correctly configured on ERS?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, thanks - the view name saved our day so far...”nncli” made the trick.

But the command still looked a bit different - the passwords have to be entered afterwards, so first:

snmp-server user test-user sha aes read-view nncli write-view nncli

After that the switch prompts you to enter the passwords.

Switch is successfully added to XMC!

This should help you.

snmp-server user test-user sha test-sha aes test-aes read-view nncli write-view nncli
(created a user “test-user” with SHA password “test-sha” and AES password “test-aes“)

The password security setting will impact if password verification is required or not. With password security enabled (default) verification is required when you enter a password or key, no password security removes the verification step (among other things) and you can script it out all in one line.
