Nexus not returning FQDN on SNMP sysName query

Hi,

All the other switches / routers on quering for SNMP sysName.0 returns their FQDN in our network. The Nexus 7010 and 5020 switches in the network return only their name. "hostname xx" and "ip domain-name xx" defined on all the devices. The SNMP MIB is matching. There are no other SNMP related issues. How can I get the FQDN for these devices ?

$  snmpget -v 2c -c public m-65k-00.core sysName.0

SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: m-65k-00.core.abcd.com

$  snmpget -v 2c -c public m-N7K-00.core sysName.0

SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: m-N7K-00

$  snmpget -v 2c -c public m-N7K-00.core.abcd.com sysName.0

SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: m-N7K-00


Thanks,

Rashid.

Re: Nexus not returning FQDN on SNMP sysName query

Hi Rashid,

Forgot to mention something, this object is context-aware, if for example your SNMP requests arrive on the mgmt0 interface it's necessary to configure the domain-name under the VRF not just globally, eg:

  vrf context management

    ip domain-name lab.cisco.com

I checked the versions you mentioned in my lab and see the expected behaviour (sysName contains FQDN) when the above config is in place.

Kind Regards,

/Phil

Nexus not returning FQDN on SNMP sysName query

Thanks Phil, That was really helpful. Seems the problem might not be fixed in (or re-appeared) in later releases. We are facing the issue both in N7K and N5K. They N7K in particular is running a later version than the earlier fixed version according to the bug page.

Thanks for your time.
