I got this answer to my question
The cure is to enter the string as hex with spaces (80 00 20) .What i did put all the
hex numbers without spaces .

Since the type is octet, SNM expects you to type strings like
80 00 20 ff a1, i.e. a hexadecimal string (in this case for (decimal): 128
0 32 255 161).
To be able to input human readable strings, you'll need to change the
type from octet to string:
Hope this helps,
