Opened: May 14, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

When creating SNMPv3 users in TMSH, it is possible to create two entries that have the same value for the 'username' keyword of the TMSH command. Only one of the entries with that username gets written to the snmpd.conf file and used by the SNMP daemon.

Impact

Only one gets written to the snmpd.conf file and used by the SNMP daemon. The SNMPv3 user configuration may not be what is expected.

Conditions

Duplicate SNMP v3 user username entries can be entered into the BIG-IP configuration.

Workaround

Ensure there are no duplicate values for the username keyword when entering SNMPv3 users in TMSH.

Fix Information

None
