CA API Gateway

Issue/Introduction

We have a requirement for our Layer7 gateways to be discoverable via SNMP.  We are attempting to follow the steps in https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/layer7-api-management/api-gateway/10-0/administer-the-gateway/gateway-as-snmp-agent/configuring-the-net-snmp-agent.html .

However, when we get to the step to create the encrypted data user by running net-snmp-config we get an error that says command not found.  Need to know complete steps to finish SNMP setup.

Cause

Changes in the net-snmp packages cause this not to work:

net-snmp-config --create-snmpv3-user -ro -a MD5 -A <user password> -x DES -X <privacy password for data encryption> <username>

Environment

Release : 10.0

Component : API GATEWAY

Resolution

Workaround is to use:

/usr/bin/net-snmp-create-v3-user

Additional Information

The documentation works on the base version of 10.0

For detailed steps on how to create an SNMPv3 user, please review the following Knowledge Article:
