SNMPv3 special cases

The following are special cases when using SNMPv3 with interactive mode.

  • snmpv3 user:

    In interactive mode, the command snmpv3 user will create snmpv3 users, even if snmpv3 has not been enabled.

  • snmpv3 user:
    When interactive mode is disabled, this command only enables snmpv3. It does not prompt for an authentication password. When the command is first executed, a default initial user is created. A message displays:
    User ‘initial’ has been created.
