Usage Guidelines

This command is used to enable SNMPv3 default-group or default-user access.

Enabling SNMPv3 default-group access activates the access to an SNMPv3 default-group and the user- created SNMPv3-user part of default-group. Enabling the SNMPv3 default-user access allows an end user to access the MIBs using SNMPv3 default-user. This command throws an error if the SNMPv3 access is disabled on the switch.

The default groups are: admin, initial, v1v2c_ro, v1v2c_rw.

The default users are: admin, initial, initialmd5, initialsha, initialmd5Priv, initialshaPriv.


The following command enables the default users on the switch:

enable snmp default-user
