BNA forwarding SNMP version conversion?

Can BNA convert received SNMPs from SAN switches to v1 or v2 when forwarding to a
monitoring system?

 

If not how should we configure the SNMP set-up and will we lose any potential alerts?

We have configured the Brocade switches to send SNMP v3 to a BNA server since we are under
the impression that v3 is necessary to get all the alerts, and wish in turn to forward them to TNG.

 

Environment:
FOS 7.2.1
BNA 12.1.4
SAN switches are configured to send SNMP v3 to BNA.
BNA configured to forward SNMP v1/v2 to TNG monitoring system.
TNG monitoring system which can only handle SNMP v1 or v2.

Server -> Options -> Trap forwarding Credentials allows you to configure the snmp credentials for the traps forwarded by BNA

i am not sure though if you configure v1/v2 it will forward v3 traps

 

the documentation is not clear to me
