Problem with removing span session in RTM v1.4 for a NAM
I have 4 6509s switches (7.3(2) CatOS) with NAM-1 cards (2.2(1a). I can manage all 4 switches from RTM and RTM sees all 4 NAM cards. With RTM, I set up a span session of 15/1 to the NAM on 2 switches, and a trunk link to the NAM on the other 2 switches. RTM showed statistics for all 4 span sessions in RTM Traff Mon. However, If I try removing the span sessions via RTM, it works for the two switches with 15/1 spanned, but not on the other 2. I get an error message from RTM for each switch:
ue Nov 26 18:00:19 GMT 2002: Protocol write error., Details: device=172.21.254.34; SnmpResponseInconsistentValue; SnmpResponseInconsistentValue on 172.21.254.34 while performing SnmpSet at index = 0; User: admin; Device: 20MSW-SD-LGC01 (172.21.254.34), Severity: 4, Code: 8009
RTM has had sp4 applied (patch level 313)
Any ideas. If I remove the span session manually through the switch CLI, how will this affect RTM?
Re: Problem with removing span session in RTM v1.4 for a NAM
Couple of things here to check for the NAMs which are giving the above error:
- The SNMP community strings on the switch as seen in the 'sh snmp' output matches exactly with the output of 'show snmp' on the NAM CLI.
- You can ping the NAM's ip address from the RTM server.
- You can either SPAN from the switch CLI or from the RTM server but not both at the same time since doing so will over write the previous SPAN settings. RTM uses SNMP to do the SPAN on the switch. So, if you use the CLI, then you do not need to use the RTM to do the same. One thing that you can try is to delete this switch from RTM, do a 'set span disable' on the switch, do a 'config clear' on the NAM, reboot the NAM, once the NAM comes back online, add the switch back again in RTM and then try to span/remove span again. Caution: doing a 'config clear' on the NAM will remove all RMON data from the NAM tables meaning you will loose all the RMON collections already done on the NAM. NAM config will remain intact.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
