Thanks Harti.

I did get the basic V3 configuration working in that I could walk the mib using 
authorization and encryption.

If Shteryana has the time, maybe he would be able to provide me with some 
information needed to configure and test V3 traps.

I don't have his e-mail so if you could forward this to him I would appreciate

I can answer only this question - I'm not very familiar with SNMPv3, but 
Shteryana should be able to help.

No, there is no document with all the setting. The reason is simple: the config 
file is just a set of SNMP SET PDUs executed at startup, SIGHUP or module load. 
The file is segmented into sections by %name lines with all segments having the 
same name beeing put together. At the begin of the file there is an implicit 
%snmpd line.

Each section is a SET PDU. The %snmpd PDU is executed on startup and SIGHUP, 
all other sections are executed when the corresponding module is beeing loaded 
or on SIGHUP if that module is already loaded when the SIGHUP occures.

So any writeable or creatable MIB variable can be put into the configuration
