Steps in configuring SNMPv3
 

  1. Creating a SNMpv3 view.
  2. Creating a SNMPv3 Group and associating with the View.
  3. Creating a SNMPv3 user and associating with the Group


1.  Creating a SNMPv3 View
 

  • A SNMPv3 view defines what we can see on the switch.
  • A View defines what MIB family we have access to from the MIB Subtree.
  • For Example, if we select the View as "system" from the MIB subtree, the user would be able to poll all the information which are below "system" OID.
  • Similarly, if we need visibility to all the parameters, we can configure the view as "iso" from the MIB subtree.


Commands
 

Console#configure

console(config)#snmp-server view test_view internet included

 

CLI Breakdown
 

Parameter Description
test_view name we create locally on the switch for the SNMP view
internet

MIB family which we select from the OID subtree.



 

2.  Creating a SNMPV3 Group
 

  • The next step after creating a SNMPv3 view is to create a SNMPv3 group and associate it with the view that has been created.
Commands:

console(config)#snmp-server group test_group v3 ‘noauth/auth/priv’ ‘read/write’ test_view



CLI Breakdown

 

Parameter Description
test_group name we create locally on the switch for the SNMP group
noauth/auth/priv authentication type
test_view Associating the SNMPV3 group with the SNMPV3 view created earlier.
 


auth       - Specifies authentication of a packet without encrypting it.

noauth  - Specifies no authentication of a packet.

priv        - Specifies authentication of a packet with encryption.


3.  Creating a SNMPV3 User

The next step after creating a SNMPv3 group is to create a SNMPv3 user and associate it with the group that has been created.


Commands

console(config)#snmp-server user test_user test_group auth-md5 password1 priv-3des password2


CLI Breakdown
 

Parameter Description
test_user name we create locally on the switch for the SNMP user
test_group Associating the SNMPV3 user with the SNMPV3 group created earlier
Auth Authentication password
Priv Encryption key
 


Configuration Example


SLN320821_en_US__1image(14832)

Console# configure
Console(config) snmp-server view test_view internet included
Console(config) snmp-server group test_group v3 priv read test_view
Console(config) snmp-server user test_user test_group auth-md5 password1 priv-3des password2


Switch Running Configuration output

snmp-server view "test_view" internet included
snmp-server group "test_group" v3 priv read "test_view"
snmp-server user "test_user" test_group auth-md5-key 240826d65a17fe9d8826630917f60b0f priv-3des-key 240826d65a17fe9d8826630917f60b0f400dd0592395032de9b2ad0759c017e9
