two different SNMPv3 groups/configs on device?

Let's say a device is already added configured for SNMPv3 and polling to solarwinds, however you want to build additional SNMPv3 configs on the same device leaving the current configs but use different group name, views, passwords, no use community, etc. Can you do this then later remove the old SNMP config after confirm new config is working and everything?

 - Basically not , but you can configure additional snmpv3 settings and keep the current ones in place.

Hi,

 

    You can have multiple SNMPv3 groups/users configured at the same time on the device, with or without views, as when you specify the SNMP server host, you'll specify which SNMPv3 user (which belongs to a specific SNMPv3 group) is used for the session with the SNMP server; other users/groups are sitting in there and not used for traps/informs.

Cristian Matei.

I apologize but do you mean I can just create an additional group, user, etc. with a current existing group still configured?

 

- Yes,
