Configuring a Device to Communicate with an NMS Through SNMPv3 (USM User)

Configuring a Device to Communicate with an NMS Through SNMPv3 (USM User)


To allow a device to communicate with an NMS through SNMPv3, configure SNMPv3 on the device. The SNMP parameters must be configured on both the managed device (agent) and NMS. This section describes only the SNMP configurations on the agent side. For details about SNMP configurations on an NMS, see the NMS operation guide.

A user security model (USM) provides identity authentication and data encryption. SNMPv3 uses USM and View-based Access Control Model (VACM) to improve security of authentication, data transmission, and access control. In addition, the SNMPv3 USM user can be configured to implement the connection between the device and NMS.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring a device to communicate with an NMS through SNMPv3, configure a routing protocol to ensure that at least one route exists between the switch and NMS.


When you configure the device to communicate with the NMS through SNMPv3, only Configuring Basic SNMPv3 Functions is mandatory. The other steps are optional and can be performed in any sequence.

After the basic SNMP functions are configured, the NMS can communicate with managed devices.
  • The NMS using the specified community name can access the ViewDefault view, in which the internet MIB (OID: can be operated.

  • The managed device sends traps generated by the modules that are enabled by default to the NMS.

The following are optional SNMPv3 configurations to implement refined management:
