NetView only queries agents in SNMP V1 format, even when it asks for SNMPV2 data.  Only the web client MIB browser uses actual SNMP V2 format, and even then only if you select it.  None of the standard NetView processes do. And natively NetView has no support at all for SNMP V3, period.   So remote agents must respond to SNMP V1 to be useful.

 However, with NetView 7.1.4 FixPack1 comes support for a third-party product, the SNMP Research agent, which you may purchase separately, which acts as a proxy for NetView.   See the 7.1.4 FixPack1 Release Notes.  You  can find out about the agent at http://www.snmp.com/products/snmpsecpack.html

[nv-l] SNMV V3

Hi list,

Does NetView for AIX 7.1.4 support SNMP V3 agents ? I am aware that thew
NV server must use the V1 version of the snmpd daemon, but does it apply
also for other servers, whatever the OS ?
