Environment:
Windows 2008 R2, 2012 R2. NFA 9.3.6 and Earlier
Cause:

Password used in SNMPv3 profile should be minimum of 8 characters. 

Workaround:

RFC3414 recommends to use password length of minimum 8 characters. NFA enforces this policy in the application and throws exceptions when the password length is less than 8 characters.

To fix this problem, change the password on device end and update SNMP profile which you have defined earlier with the new password.
