Cause
With some products this is optional, but the SecureStacks expect the remote engineID to be entered with a colon ("

Solution
Functions as Designed (FAD).

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

For example:
code:

B3(su)-

>[code]set snmp user Myv3admin remote 81:11:17:e5:80:7f:4f:11:11:d7:f7:4f:49 authentication md5 MyAuthPass privacy MyPrivPass[/code]
