Issue/Introduction

The "Validate Credential" function in the snmpcollector probe always validates the credentials no matter if they are good or bad.

Wrong Credentials will pass as success:

 

With bad credentials for example bad user, bad Authentication key or bad Privacy Key. it returns "Credentials valid". 

 

Example:

Check snmp credential are start on abx123-1 equipment  one time at 7:36 without  good  credential 

Check snmp credential are start on abx123-1 equipment  one time at 7:39 with  bad   credential (bad user , bad authetication Key and bad privacy key). 

result in snmpcollector.log:

Aug 24 07:36:06:477 [attach_socket, snmpcollector] Credentials were valid for abx123-1.DOMAIN
Aug 24 07:39:01:313 [attach_socket, snmpcollector] Credentials were valid for abx123-1.DOMAIN

 

This occurs with snmpv1, v2, v3
