Symptoms

SNMP v3 allows for 'views' to be created. These views can be a union of multiple sub-branch OID access config statements. Users/groups can then be assigned to a view.

Impact

The BIG-IP system does not support view configuration. If multiple views are created using the lines: rouser USER [noauth|auth|priv [OID]], the system adds only one of them to the snmpd.conf file.

Conditions

If more that one snmpd view is specified per community string the second view is not accessible. Note: A view is a portion of a MIB tree defined by an OID.

Workaround

Multiple views with the same community string are not supported.

Fix Information

Multiple snmpd views with the same community string is supported.
