We use CiscoWorks LAN Managment Suite. (LMS 2.6, DFM 2.0.10) to manage our network infrastructure.
After configuring DFM I'm receiving many operationallyDown events from DFM although I'm sure the vlan is up&running.
The event description contains information that AdminStatus\OperStatus wouldn't be present, but a manually snmp request with snmpget on the device with OID 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.7.29 tells me the interface is âUpâ. Five minutes later DFM excecutes the next snmp-request with the expected value (-> UP) and cleares the event (see attachment).
EVENT DESCRIPTION = OperationallyDown::Component=IF-swiBasellys12.nw.coop.ch/29 [VL100] [172.17.100.50] [NMS];Type=ETHERNETCSMACD;OperStatus=NOTPRESENT;InterfaceCode=CODEUNKNOWN;DuplexMode=HALFDUPLEX;AdminStatus=NOTPRESENT;LastChangedAt=18-Mar-2008 17:02:29;IsFlapping=f
To have an idea what's really going on I've made sniffertraces (see attachment). You can see two identical snmp get-requests (on the same OID) from DFM (IP: 10.1.9.29) with two different responses from a Cisco C3500XL (IP: 172.17.100.50), once you can see the correct value âUPâ the following response is ânoSuchInstanceâ:
Btw: I've expericenced this problem only with C3500XL running on differnet IOS-versions.
