    Snmpv3 configuration on AIX Server

    chandu_7

      Hi,

       

      I have been trying to configure snmpv3 on AIX server with AES encryption method.

      I have followed the creating snmp user as suggested by IBM,after configuring,when we try to test it on solarwind with username and passwd and MD5 authentication,the connection fails.

       

      Here is what i configured on snmpv3.conf and clssnmp.conf file..

       

      USM_USER u1 - HMAC-MD5 aeeb841545d74939fjkdfhfd77b31a479e2 - - L -

      Could anyone suggest or post the exact snmpv3 configuration steps for AIX clients.

       

      Thanks in Advance...
