Enabling SNMPv3

The snmpv3 enable command allows the switch to:
  • Receive SNMPv3 messages.

  • Configure initial users.

  • Restrict non-version 3 messages to "read only" (optional).


Restricting access to only version 3 messages makes the community named "public" inaccessible to network management applications (such as autodiscovery, traffic monitoring, SNMP trap generation, and threshold setting) from running on the switch.
