Hi all,


We have deployed an N5000 which is polled by a management station.

Since then the log gets flooded with messages like this:


2010 May 12 08:19:52.006 xxxx snmpd: SNMP Operation (GET) failed. Reason:2 reqId (66076779) errno (42) error index (1)
2010 May 12 08:19:52.007 xxxx snmpd: 66076779.000000:iso.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.17.4.1.1.1.0 = NULL  SNMPPKTEND
2010 May 12 08:19:52.007 xxxx snmpd:  SNMPERRPKTSTRT: 0.000000 160 66076779.000000 0.000000 0.000000 0.000000 0 0 1 1 0  
5---xxxxx 9 0 0 0.000000 0.000000 0.0.0.0  0  0  0  0 0 0 0 16


I guess this is becuase the management station polls a non-existing mib variable. However, i don't want this to be logged to the log file.

How to prevent this ?

Logging levels are at:


logging level snmpd 1


System version: version 4.1(3)N2(1a)




regards,

Geert

This is a bug (CSCsv84108) which was fixed in 4.2
