Introduction:
How to save and ensure SNMPv3 Profile prior to migration (export function to readable data). Background is, that the SNMP v3 profile data are "exportable" by ModelingGateway/MGW into one data-set (covering all v3 profile info) which is not readable (binary encrypted data).
Question:
How to save and ensure SNMPv3 Profile prior to migration (export function to readable data).
Target is to allow SNMPv3 Profile data (settings / user-names, password, ciphers) verification with a single V3-profile export record - to then allow automated verification and checks.
 
Environment:
This applies to all CA Spectrum OS platforms and all releases
Answer:
Using MGW to "export_all" and then to "import_all" is the only "automated option".
The only current "workaround" is to create via OC-Console a screenshot per single V3 profile entry.
This is at "production level" no solution i.e. when having more than 100 v3 Profiles. Also, this does not allow to run a check per batch-job to validate the settings.


This Requested for an SNMPv3 Profile export function to "plain text" export is targeted for CA Spectrum R10.4.
