Opened: Sep 17, 2020

Severity: 3-Major


Whenever snmp user is added with short password (less than 8 characters), tmsh allows this during creation but throws an error when snmpwalk is done. But in GUI it throws error "Password must have at least 8 characters." during creation itself.


snmpwalk fails


Configuring snmp user from tmsh with password less than 8 characters leads to this problem of getting error during snmp walk.


Configure snmp user with password greater than or equal to 8 characters.
