Zabbix Monitoring PA-7050 via SNMP v3

L1 Bithead


I have a couple of PA-7050 firewalls that I monitor from Solarwinds Orion via snmp v3.  However, when  I try to monitor those same devices via Zabbix (SNMP v3), I am unable to get an SNMP response via the Zabbix application.  SNMPwalk works fine from the command line on the zabbix server.  TCPdumps indicate that communication may be mixing DES and AES encryption in the middle of the communication exchanges.  Seems to happen on Zabbix version 5 and version 3.  Has anyone else had this experience or have a suggestion on places to look for a solution?

There's an instance that matches your issue exactly from 2018 that I was able to find that was never resolved on the Zabbix forums. I would try a new entry there or maybe the Zabbix reddit since reddit is more active from a support aspect than the forums are. 

Thank you for your response. I will try reddit.  I am all over the zabbix forum.  Hoping to get a good response there too.

Thanks all for the responses. I was given a solution in a zabbix forum that seems to work.
