Users are not able to discover SNMPv3 devices in Spectrum even though the agent configuration is correct. When reviewing a sniffer trace, the agent responds to Spectrum with usmStatsWrongDigests, which indicates that the authentication information between Spectrum and the SNMPv3 agent are incorrect. Upon further inspection of the agent, it was found that the passwords were hashed.
Spectrum does not support HMAC-SHA-2 (Hashed Message Authentication Mode) authentication.
Reconfigure the SNMPv3 agent so that it does not use HMAC 2 authentication. The following hash algorithms are HMAC-2 and are not supported:
The Spectrum SNMP agent supports the standard SHA-1 and MD5 hashing algorithms:
HMAC-MD5-96 (used as 'MD5' in Spectrum)
HMAC-SHA-96 (used as 'SHA' in Spectrum)
