Issue/Introduction

Can CA Spectrum discover SNMPV3 traps and informs through the Unmanaged Trap Discovery?

Question: Is it possible for Spectrum to create models based on SNMP V3 TRAPS and INFORMS?

Environment

Any

Resolution


Yes, Spectrum will support SNMP V3 traps and informs based on the following conditions. 

1. The V3 community string must be present in the SNMP community strings.

    The SNMPv3 community strings need to be in the same format as seen on devices modeled using SNMPv3 from the discovery console.


  NoAuthNoPriv Format
  #v3/N/userid

  example:
     #v3/N/snmpuser
 
  Authentication No Privacy (AuthNoPriv) Format
  #v3/A:authpassword/userid

  example using SHA protocol for authentication
     #v3/A:SHA^authpass/snmpuser

  Authentication with Privacy (AuthPriv) Format
  #v3/P:authpassword:privpassword/userid

   example using SHA for authentication and AES for privacy
      #v3/P:SHA^authpass:AES^privpass/snmpuser

 


2. Enable the Auto Discovery control configuration(Unmanaged Trap Discovery) under the VNM model.
