The settings in the SNMP v3 profile may be incorrect


CA Performance Management, all versions


See if you can get a walk of the device, with a 3rd party tool, using the information from the SNMP v3 profile that you had created (using sapwalk2, in this case)


sapwalk -i -v v3 -s -n 2 -u xxxxxx -xt SHA -xa xxxxxx -xp xxxxxx -p 161 -l AP
