Setting Up SNMP on SG 300-52

I have a Cisco Switch SG 300-52 and "thought" I had SNMP setup, but when I try to use Solarwinds Real Time Bandwidth Monitor to do some monitoring I get a Credentials Failed when I try to access.  

My SNMP setup on the switch is SNMPv3 and has a user named admin in a group named administration with a Engine ID of Local and Authentication set for SHA and I do know the password.  

When I go into Solarwinds Real-Time Bandwidth Monitor I give it the IP address, select SNMP v3 choose New Credential Set - - give it a credential set name of administration,  username of admin,  choose SNMPv3 Authentication Method of SHA-1 and type in the password.  I choose NEXT and it spins like it's trying to connect and then comes back with a Credential Test Failed.  I've also tried this by setting the authentication method on the switch to MD5 and get the same results.

Any ideas what I'm missing????  Any ideas on how to start troubleshooting????

I have this same configuration on a Linksys SRW2024 and it works great.

Thanks so much!

Try using SNMP v2 with a read only SNMP community string.
