SNMP V3 on Extreme 200 switch Os 7.8
Posted on 2009-05-11
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...
