Unable to open socket ointerface FastEthernet0/23

I am getting this error when I try to configure a port on a switch. Any idea as to what could cause this?

Thanks

Hello Fred,

Can you provide me with the exact error message? Is it something similar to this""Unable to open socket on port 161"?

Re: Unable to open socket ointerface FastEthernet0/23

%IP_SNMP-3-SOCKET : can't open UDP socket

Explanation    The SNMP server was unable to open a port for receiving or
transmitting SNMP requests. This usually happens when the SNMP server is
started using the snmp-server community configuration command on a router or
communication server with an interface that has no IP address configured.
Another possible cause is low memory.

Recommended Action    Configure at least one interface with an IP address or
specify the no snmp-server command to remove the SNMP server process.

This is a command message and does not indicate error.

I hope this helps.

Fabienne.
