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.

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

 

- Yes,

I actually use this little template for troubleshooting with Solarwinds, which seems to hate everything but noauth in the current problem I'm tracking down. You can set the ACL up as access-list 99 permit a.b.c.d.

 

snmp-server group Orion_NA v3 noauth access 99
snmp-server user Orion_NA Orion_NA v3 access 99

snmp-server group Orion_Auth v3 auth access 99
snmp-server user Orion_Auth Orion_Auth v3 auth sha hashthis access 99

snmp-server group Orion_Priv v3 priv access 99
snmp-server user Orion_Priv Orion_Priv v3 auth sha hashthis priv aes 128 encryptme access 99

Another tip RE Solarwinds and Cisco - In order to get any level of encryption to work, I had to un-check the "Password is key" boxes for both Authentication and Encryption. Now if I could just get better than AES128 with NetMRI.....
