Usage Guidelines

Use this command to remove access rights for a group. Use the all-non-defaults keyword to delete all the security groups, except for the default groups. The default groups are: admin, initial, v1v2c_ro, v1v2c_rw.

Deleting an access will not implicitly remove the related group to user association from the VACMSecurityToGroupTable. To remove the association, use the following command:

configure snmpv3 delete group {[[hex hex_group_name] |group_name]} user [all-non-defaults | {[[hexhex_user_name] |user_name] {sec-model [snmpv1|snmpv2c|usm]}}]


The following command deletes all entries with the group name userGroup:

configure snmpv3 delete access userGroup

The following command deletes the group userGroup with the security model snmpv1 and security level of authentication and no privacy (authnopriv):

configure snmpv3 delete access userGroup sec-model snmpv1 sec-level authnopriv
