When I try to add a device with SNMPv3 auth and/or priv passwords that are less than 8 characters long, I get an error message.
Here is an example of the error message seen when the privacy password length is less than 8 characters (the auth password length is longer than 8 characters in this case):
Password and verify values for Privacy Password must be minimum of 8 characters length.
The error message appears as well if the authentication password length is less than 8 characters or if both auth and priv passwords length is less than 8 characters. Only the error message text is a bit different for authentication password.
The message appears either when trying to fill in the SNMPv3 credentials manually when adding a device or when creating a default credential set.
I found a known bug (CSCtr21972) which should have been already fixed in LMS 4.2 according to LMS 4.2 release notes.
I was running LMS 4.2 before the upgrade to 4.2.2 and 4.2.4 but I never tried adding a device with SNMPv3 credentials while running LMS 4.2, so I don't know if it had that limitation as well in 4.2.
I only tried this today after the upgrade to 4.2.2 and then again after the upgrade to 4.2.4.
In both versions I saw the error message.
Do you familiar with this limitation?
Do you know if there is any place where I can change it? I didn't find any SNMPv3 password policy like we have with the local users on LMS.

When moving from OSPFv2 to OSPFv3, there are many changes in the format of the LSAs Type, but the most known changes are: IP prefix informations are no longer carried in Type-1 LSA and Type-2 LSA, new LSAs Type 8 and 9 are added to carry these prefixes.
