Hello everyone I'm trying to configure snmpv3 on a extreme summit 200-48 switch and not having any luck. Here is what I've done so far.

I've created a username "test1" with md5 authentication and DES encryption set both passwords and it shows up in the snmpv3 users list fine. I then created a new group called "Techs" with read-view, write-view, notify-view permissions with usm and the private key as well, and added the test user to this group. Now everytime I try to gather information on this switch thru my manager I get an error saying that I cant communicate with the agent. I have created the proper vlan, configured proper IP's, configured both username and passwords for the authentication and the encryption in the manager software and enabled the snmp service on my  manager pc. Is there anything else that I need to do besides creating the account group?? do I need to define the mib view? for the group? or should it authenticate and gather information on the standard MIB...any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

Also any suggestions on which manager is easy to use..I'm using PRTG Network Monitor...

In order to eliminate any issues with PRTG and see the raw output of SNMP requests, try using the SNMP Tester that Paessler provides - http://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester

Also, I would remove all levels of authentication and just create a view that allows read access. Drop the DES, drop the IP restriction, drop the views. Once you are able to get the query to run, add them back in one by one.

SNMP traffic should be readable by PRTG direct, but if you have a MIB for your device, I would import it with the PRTG MIB Importer and use that as a library instead. http://www.paessler.com/tools/mibimporter
