Help enable SNMPv3 in Nortel Switch 5520 - SW: 5.1.0.015
« on: March 06, 2015, 01:23:55 PM »
Hello guys.

I come through this post, ask help you to enable snmpv3 and disable snmp v1/v2c in Nortel Switches.

I tried to disable SNMP v1/v2c e enable SNMPv3 in a switch, using this procedure -> blog.michaelfmcnamara.com/2009/10/how-to-configure-snmp-v3-on-nortel-ethernet-routing-switches/ and .michaelfmcnamara.com/files/NN48500-594_1.0_ERS_Mgmt_Access_Security.pdf:

The configs the equipment where i executed the procedure are below:
- Nortel 5520-48T-PWR, FW: 5.0.0.4 SW: 5.1.0.015, BOSS 5.1 SSH

I did step by step as procedure, but i didn't get success. Then i'd like to ask you, there are a bug in this version of the SW/FW, that doesn't permit snmpV3 works correctly?

Thanks.

Hi,

I am not aware of a particular bug in your Software version, but you have a really old version from 2007
on your switch. I think to do an updte to a newer swoftware release is a good idea.

Good Luck
Itīs always the networks fault!

Hi there, I don't know if this will help or not but I have been working with SNMPv3 recently and ran into an issue where my switch was configured correctly but I could not get it communicating with SNMPv3.  It turns out that when I ran "show run" I noticed the following:

boot config flags block-snmp

This line will disable SNMP completely.  I ran:

no boot config flags block-snmp

This turned SNMP back on and everything started working.  I don't ever remember turning SNMP off and these are brand new switches but I have been playing around with the SNMP config so much that I might have done it by accident.  Anyway, I just thought I'd throw this out there for you to check.

Good luck.
