SNMP v3 configured on a C3750 switch but it sends SNMPv2 traps

Hi colleagues, our networkmanagement server has to receive SNMP v3 traps. Therefore a c3750 switch [ios 12.2(25)SEC] has been configured as follows: configured on switch: bn3cisw01(config-if)#do sho run | incl snmp snmp-server engineID remote 10.108.107.11 80001F88809C5A37120BE5905000000000 snmp-server group admin v3 auth notify *tv.FFFFFFFF.FFFFFFFF.FFFFFFFF.F snmp-server trap-source Vlan1042 snmp-server enable traps snmp linkdown linkup snmp-server enable traps cpu threshold snmp-server host 10.108.107.11 version 3 auth admin ######################## After triggering a SNMP trap by shutting down interface Gi1/0/13, v2 traps have been send: sw01(config-if)# 2w4d: %LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface GigabitEthernet1/0/13, changed state to administratively down 2w4d: SNMP: Queuing packet to 10.108.107.11 2w4d: SNMP: V2 Trap, reqid 460, errstat 0, erridx 0 sysUpTime.0 = 156149620 snmpTrapOID.0 = snmpTraps.3 ifIndex.10113 = 10113 ifDescr.10113 = GigabitEthernet1/0/13 ifType.10113 = 6 lifEntry.20.10113 = administratively down 2w4d: SNMP: Packet sent via UDP to 10.108.107.11 ######################## recived by Server: [root@sv91 tmp]# tshark -i any port 162 Running as user "root" and group "root".

SNMP v3 configured on a C3750 switch but it sends SNMPv2 traps

For SNMPv3 traps, you need to configure SNMP informs...

SNMP v3 configured on a C3750 switch but it sends SNMPv2 traps

I have an SNMP v3 server, IOS is 12.2 (55) on my 3750X and 3560X, but traps only works on v2.


I'm attending the LMS 4.x training for a week, I'm going to straighten this up with the Cisco instructor.



From another thread/user:
https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2151735

"Enabling SNMP Traps on Switch Ports

Admin > Collection Settings: User Tracking > Device Trap Configuration

You must configure the Cisco switches for sending SNMPv1/SNMPv2 MAC Notification Traps when a host is connected to or disconnected from that port.  Even if the device is managed with SNMPv3, LMS processes only SNMPv1/SNMPv2 traps."

I'd be careful with SNMP informs, read more about it before proceeding. From my reading, it creates a lot of noise in your network.

pay attention to "Use Guidelines" at the bottom of the doc.
