How to configure SNMPv3 on Riverbed Steelhead

Version 1

    Ok, I have been working on this one for about two hours.  The documentation I found online was not very helpful, so this is what I came up with.

     

    Using the web interface:

     

    Configure > System Settings > SNMPv3

         Username:                                 myrvrbed  (lower case)

         Authentication Protocol:            SHA

         Authentication:                          Supply a password

         Password:                                 A2B@CDE#fg  (names and places changed to protect the innocent, 8-10 characters)

         Password Confirm:                   A2B@CDE#fg  (names and places changed to protect the innocent, 8-10 characters)

     

    Use Privacy Option:                       (Check the box)

         Privacy Protocol:                      AES    (Actually AES-128)

         Privacy:                                    Supply a Password

         Privacy Password:                    S2T@uve#XY  (names and places changed to protect the innocent, 8-10 characters)

         Privacy Password Confirmed:  S2T@uve#XY  (names and places changed to protect the innocent, 8-10 characters)

     

    Configure > System Settings > SNMP ACLs

         Security Names:

              Security Name:                    MYSWOR

              Community String:               M1N@opq#ST

              Source IP Address and Mask Bits:  10.10.10.10/32

     

         Groups:

              Group Name:                       MYGROUP

              Security Model and Name Pairs:  usm      myrvrbed

     

          Views:

              View Name:                          NPMisIT

               includes:                              .1

     

         Access Polices

              Group Name:                      MYGROUP

              Security Level:                    authpriv

              Read view:                          NPMisIT

     

     

    Hope this helps.  Please feel free to added or correct.
