    creating SNMP user in Solaris 11.3

    Muhammad Owais Hyder

      I want to create an snmp user with authorization type=SHA1/2/3 and the privacy protocol should be AES128 or higher.


      svcadm disable svc:/application/management/net-snmp:default

      /usr/bin/net-snmp-config --create-snmpv3-user -a SHA -x AES128 owais

      Enter authentication pass-phrase:


      Enter encryption pass-phrase:

        [press return to reuse the authentication pass-phrase]


      adding the following line to /var/net-snmp/snmpd.conf:

         createUser owais SHA "12345678" AES128 12345678

      adding the following line to /etc/net-snmp/snmp/snmpd.conf:

         rwuser owais

        svcadm enable svc:/application/management/net-snmp:default


      when I want to test

      snmpget -v3  -l authPriv -u owais -a SHA -A 12345678 -x AES -X 12345678 sysUpTime.0

      it returns

      Invalid privacy protocol specified after -x flag: AES


      can anyone confirm if only the DES as privacy protocol is supported and I can't use AES?
