    Noticed Spectrum not picking up devices off snmp traps.  What format should the snmp be entered into the VNN- AutoDiscovery Controler - Modeling & Protocol Options - SNMP Community Strings section?

    I've added the name of our snmpv3 profile there and the string notation used to poll snmpv3 devices:      #v3/P:SHA^shapwd1:AES^aespwd2/V3UA

    Do you have any SNMPv3 profile with the V3 credentials?

    CA support identified I had created another snmpv3 profile using the same snmpv3 user as my primary snmpv3 profile.  Using same snmpv3 user name is not supported by Spectrum.  This is what broke trap based discovery.  Deleted the other profile.  Everything is working now.

    FYI -  The ability to use the same username in multiple v3 profiles was added in 10.3.2.
