There is a network device that was initially discovered with snmpv2# credentials

Then snmpv3 was configured on the device and trying to discover it with V3 profile, it is still getting discovered with V2# credentail only.

Deleted the device from OC and also from snmpcollector and tried discovering it with snmpv3 profile and it gets discovered with V2# only.

Tried adding the device manually in the snmpcollector probe profile with V3 credentials and it gets added.

Why does the device get discovered in OC with snmp V2 when trying to discover it with snmpvV3?
