This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the issue when the SNMPV3 test fails.
The device is responding to SNMPv3 request with some Context Name, which is not been sent by Orion NPM. Therefore, when the information is returned under SNMPV3 packet its been rejected by Orion .
SNMPv3 Username: testuser
SNMPv3 Authentication Method: SHA1
SNMPv3 Authentication Password: test1234ro
SNMPv3 Privacy / Encryption Method: DES56
SNMPv3 Privacy / Encryption Password: test1234ro
However, device was responding back with testuser under contextname.
Either Context Name has to be configured on the device and then fed in the Orion NPM SNMPV3 or the issue has to be corrected by the Device Vendor
Remove the Context from the actual device. Refer to Troubleshoot an SNMP Node/SNMP Test Failed result.
