    Help with Adding snmpv3 brocade switch to Solarwinds

    jfontenot

      We have two new Brocade 6510 running Fabric v7.4.1e and a fairly new Solarwinds installation. We are trying to setup snmpv3 between the two but are unsuccessful. We followed the procedure found here to setup snmpv3 on the brocade using the user PKUSER. Below is the settings as shown from the brocade CLI. The ip addresses have been taken out but they are all pointing to the Solarwinds server that is running the SNMP services. We are trying to setup a read only user with SHA and AES256.

       

       

       

      root> snmpconfig --show snmpv3

      SNMP Informs = 1 (ON)

      SNMPv3 USM configuration:
      User 1 (rw): snmpadmin1
              Auth Protocol: noAuth
              Priv Protocol: noPriv
              Engine ID: 80:00:05:23:01:ac:1a:1a:ac
      User 2 (rw): snmpadmin2
              Auth Protocol: noAuth
              Priv Protocol: noPriv
              Engine ID: 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00
      User 3 (rw): snmpadmin3
              Auth Protocol: noAuth
              Priv Protocol: noPriv
              Engine ID: 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00
      User 4 (ro): PKUSER
              Auth Protocol: SHA
              Priv Protocol: AES256
              Engine ID: 80:00:05:23:01:ac:1a:1a:ac
      User 5 (ro): snmpuser2
              Auth Protocol: noAuth
              Priv Protocol: noPriv
              Engine ID: 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00
      User 6 (ro): admin
              Auth Protocol: noAuth
              Priv Protocol: noPriv
              Engine ID: 00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00

      SNMPv3 Trap/Informs configuration:
      Trap Entry 1:     x.x.x.x
          Trap Port: 162
          Trap User: PKUSER
          Trap recipient Severity level: 4
          Notify Type: INFORM(2)
      Trap Entry 2:     x.x.x.x
          Trap Port: 162
          Trap User: admin
          Trap recipient Severity level: 0
          Notify Type: TRAP(1)
      Trap Entry 3:     x.x.x.x
          Trap Port: 162
          Trap User: admin
          Trap recipient Severity level: 0
          Notify Type: TRAP(1)
      Trap Entry 4:     No trap recipient configured yet
          Notify Type: TRAP(1)
      Trap Entry 5:     No trap recipient configured yet
          Notify Type: TRAP(1)
      Trap Entry 6:     x.x.x.x
          Trap Port: 162
          Trap User: admin
          Trap recipient Severity level: 4
          Notify Type: TRAP(1)

       

       

      Here is a picture of the node settings for the Brocade switch. As you can see the test fails.

      In the TrapService.log on the solarwinds server the following is listed over and over.

      2017-04-28 02:04:47,574 [73] ERROR TrapService.TrapService - Bad trap packet received from Node with IP x.x.x.x. Error description : Unknown user and engine. Packet discarded

       

      I have verified the username, password, and context over and over. I can't seem to figure out what is going on. Please assist.
