          I don't see an "snmp-server view ..." declaration in there anywhere or anything in the group declaration that indicates which view the group V3-RO-VIEW should be able to access.  Here's some Cisco documentation on this.  The following should enable read-only access to all MIBs with OIDs beginning with 1 (which is pretty much everything):

          snmp-server group V3-RO-VIEW v3 auth access 500 read myview
          snmp-server view myview iso included
          snmp-server host 124.100.40.190 version 3 auth public
          snmp-server user public V3-RO-VIEW v3 auth sha cisco priv des56 cisco

          Hope this helps.

              I had the same problem until I configured views. Here is what I would dump. Not all devices may not support 'priv' so I had two different group and user scripts.

              Setting up views:
              snmp-server view viewname interfaces included
              snmp-server view viewname internet included
              snmp-server view viewname chassis included
              snmp-server view viewname system included

              ------------------------------------------
              Setting up group:
              snmp-s group snmpgroup v3 priv read viewname
              snmp-s group snmpgroup v3 priv write viewname notify viewname

              or

              snmp-s group snmpgroup v3 auth read viewname write viewname notify viewname

              ------------------------------------------
              Setting up user:
              snmp-s user snmpuser snmpgroup v3 auth md5 snmpsecret priv des56 snmpsecret

              or

              snmp-s user snmpuser snmpgroup v3 auth md5 snmpsecret
