To access MIB objects by using SNMPv3, you should create users with login-snmp capability.

    useradmin role add role_name -a login-snmp

    role_name is the role name with login-snmp capability.


    useradmin role add myrole1 -a login-snmp

  2. Enter the following command to create a group and add the created role to that group:
    useradmin group add group_name -r role_name

    group_name is the group name to which you want to add the created role, role_name.


    useradmin group add mygroup1 -r myrole1

  3. Enter the following command to create a user and add the user to the created group:
    useradmin user add user_name -g group_name

    user_name is the user name belonging to the group, group_name.


    useradmin user add myuser1 -g mygroup1

  4. Create a password for the new user.

    Ensure that the password has a minimum of eight and a maximum of sixteen characters.

  5. Enter the snmpwalk command through the system MIB:
    snmpwalk -v 3 -u user_name -l authNoPriv -A password storage_system system

    password is the user's password that you entered in Step 3.
