    Is there any documentation on disabling snmp v1 and v2, and also enabling snmp v3 on the appliances.

    I do know command to create an snmpv3 user, but it will be nice if someone can point me to a knowledge base article for the topics in related to this.


    Thanks & regards,

    Hi Anand,


    The Gateway does not currently support SNMP v3. You may want to review the below idea and vote for it.


    Support SNMP version 3 for CA API gateway

    Hi Joe,


    Thanks for replying, but your answer is not completely correct. The gateway application might not be supporting snmpv3, but the underlying Red Hat OS does . 


    I was able to create a snmp v3 user using the script /usr/bin/net-snmp-create-v3-user and was able to send messages to trap2sink configured in /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file.


    This was on

    Gateway Appliance v8.1

    Linux: 2.6.32-504.3.3.el6.x86_64


    rpm packages, these upgraded with Layer7_PlatformUpdate_64bit_v8.1-01-28-2015.L7P patch.
