Description (partial)

- With snmp configuration if we are using "password encryption aes" to encrypt the snmp community string then ASA won't recognize following command after upgrading from 9.1.4 to 9.1.5

snmp-server host  <interface-name> <ip-address> poll community <community-name>


snmp-server host inside poll community public
snmp-server community public

- After we enter following command:--

password encryption aes

sh run snmp-server
snmp-server host inside poll community 8 9+bw38JPBvGvlSL+oz2pEthC+e+mhw==
snmp-server community 8 xU5qOY2T4DrewJB76ALkVSPTZ7m/RQ==

- After ASA is upgraded from 9.1.4 to 9.1.5

Reboot to 9.1(5); it will product the following output upon boot:
Reading from flash...

!!!!..ERROR: user/community name is not valid
*** Output from config line 157, "snmp-server host inside ..."

- And we are only left with:
snmp-server community 8 xU5qOY2T4DrewJB76ALkVSPTZ7m/RQ==

Command "password encryption aes" should be configured.
