I am trying to add some router/switches to be monitored using SNMPv3 in Airwave
I have left the setup for the router/switches on the Device Setup>Communications page at the defaults.
From the Device Setup>Add window I select Router/Switch and fill in all of the values for SNMPv3, leaving the community string feilds blank as I am not using V2
When I add the device Airwave is unable to poll. I see an SNMP get failed.
I know the configuration on the switch is good as I have tested with another utility and I am able to connect without a problem.
I looks to me like AMP is trying to connect using SNMPv2
Is there some part of my AirWave setup I have missed?

In the Airwave Group your device is in, you need to change the SNMP Version to 3. It is 2c by default

Re: Manually add a SNMPv3 device in Airwave

After applying the above, I was still having issues getting Cisco 9300 Switch added via SNMPv3.
Below was output when debugging SNMP packet/session/headers:
Incoming SNMP packet
005554: Feb 15 09:08:57.694: v3 packet security model: v3 security level: noauth
005555: Feb 15 09:08:57.694: username: xxxxxxxxx
Airwave was getting no SNMP reponse from device.
After some trial and error, the CLI on Switch command fixed the SNMP No Auth error.
snmp-server user xxxxxxxxx ***SNMP Group*** v3 auth md5 ****Key**** priv aes 128 ****Key****
(Pre-Existing SNMP Command)
- snmp-server group ***SNMP Group*** v3 auth
Afterwards, the debug output shows security level: AUTH as shown below:
Incoming SNMP packet
009248: Feb 15 09:34:57.223: v3 packet security model: v3 security level: auth
009249: Feb 15 09:34:57.223: username: XXXXXXXXXX
Airwave now able to poll switch via SNMPv3.
