configure snmpv3 add target-params

configure snmpv3 add target-params [[hex hex_param_name] | param_name ]user [[hex hex_user_name] | user_name] mp-model [snmpv1 |snmpv2c | snmpv3] sec-model [snmpv1 | snmpv2c | usm] {sec-level [noauth | authnopriv | priv]} {volatile}


Adds and configures SNMPv3 target parameters.

Syntax Description

hex_param_name Specifies the parameter name associated with the target. The value is to be supplied as a colon separated string of hex octets.
param_name Specifies the parameter name associated with the target in ASCII format.
hex_user_name Specifies a user name. The value is to be supplied as a colon separated string of hex octets.
user_name Specifies a user name in ASCII format.
mp-model Specifies a message processing model; choose from SNMPv1, SNMPv2, or SNMPv3.
sec-model Specifies the security model to use.
snmpv1 Specifies the SNMPv1 security model.
snmpv2c Specifies the SNMPv2c security model.
usm Specifies the SNMPv3 User-based Security Model (USM).
sec-level Specifies the security level for the group.
noauth Specifies no authentication (and implies no privacy) for the security level.
authnopriv Specifies authentication and no privacy for the security level.
priv Specifies authentication and privacy for the security level.
volatile Specifies volatile storage. By specifying volatile storage, the configuration is not saved across a switch reboot.


The default values are:
  • sec-level—noauth.

  • non-volatile storage.

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to create an entry in the SNMPv3 snmpTargetParamsTable. This table specifies the message processing model, security level, security model, and the storage parameters for messages to any target addresses associated with a particular parameter name.

To associate a target address with a parameter name, see the command configure snmpv3 add target-addr.


The following command specifies a target parameters entry named P1, a user name of guest, message processing and security model of SNMPv2c, and a security level of no authentication:

configure snmpv3 add target-params P1 user guest mp-model snmpv2c sec-model snmpv2c sec-level noauth


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.

The hex_param_name and hex_user_name parameters were added in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
