(solved) Node discovery with SNMPv3 on Cisco 3850 Stack
« on: March 10, 2020, 11:29:06 AM »
Hello,

I have a couple 3850 (~40 devices running in 8 stacks) - using NeDi 1.8 they are discovered fine, but I get a status line like:

10.x.x.x     frasw-closet-0E IlIx i362  j1   p1 b0 m24   Ac a4/0o0/0    f0   37/1-28s

.. so no "v#" or "FpXXX" status like I get them from other Cisco devices (older 65xx catalysts, and Nexus 7k/5k) when NeDi discovers nodes per vlan (and yes, there are vlans configured)

I wonder if somebody had success in discovering nodes attached to 3850's using SNMP v3 ?
Any hint welcome..

Best Regards,
Andreas


the v3 config used on the switches is very similar to our other v3 setups:

snmp-server view readview internet included
snmp-server group readonly v3 priv read readview
snmp-server user nedi-md5-aes readonly v3 auth md5 xxxxxxxxx priv aes 128 zzzzzzzzzz
snmp-server group readonly v3 priv context vlan- match prefix read readview


also tried to give context access by vlan id, but that made no change:
snmp-server group readonly v3 priv context vlan-20 read readview

Devices are WS-C3850-48P-S, sysobjid 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.1.1745

fixed by adding the missing

VLnams   1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.46.1.3.1.1.4

in the cisco 3850stack definition file / 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.1.1745.def

Don't know how to submit patches, but please update this sysobj file in further versions of NeDi

Best Regards,
Andreas

This is fine, even though you need to be patient with me these days :-)

I have this for pretty much all Cisco definitions:
VLnams  1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.46.1.3.1.1.4.1
