HP 5130, config backup via snmp doesn't work

This doesn't work with our brand new HP 5130-48G-PoE+-4SFP+ (370W) EI Switch:


% snmpset -v3 -l authPriv -u kayttaja -a SHA -A salasana1 -x AES -X salasana2 i 6 i 2 s h3c-test.cfg a i 4
Error in packet.
Reason: noCreation (That table does not support row creation or that object can not ever be created)
Failed object: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.25506.


According to


this snmpset command should backup startup configuration from Comware 7 switch to tftp server. SNMPv3 works otherwise fine with this switch.


I'm trying this method to backup switch configs because local user accounts are not available while TACACS+ (HWTACACS in HP newspeak) is used. With juniper EX-series it's easy to backup switch config every night using local account with ssh key auth and providing limited access via TACACS+ accounts to user support people.
