Question:

How to generate unique SNMPv3 engine IDs on SystemEDGE agents?

Answer:
  1. Stop the CA SystemEDGE service.
  2. Delete the file C:\Program Files\CA\SystemEDGE\Data\port1691\.v3_eng.id
  3. Start the CA SystemEDGE service.
  4. A new .v3_eng.id will be generated with a unique SNMPv3 Engine Id.

If you will be imaging a system with SystemEDGE Pre-Installed or Copying the SystemEDGE\Port number to multiple systems it is best to first delete the .v3_eng.id to ensure when the agent starts on a unique Engine Id is generated for each host.
