SNMP false reports????

I have a 6509 which has been configured for SNMP. I am the only person who has access to the switch. When I make a config change on the switch my network monitoring software deoas display an alert notifying me. However, recently it has been notifying me of config changes when there has been none made. Any suggestions as to what may be causing this or how to troubleshoot this would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Re: SNMP false reports????

Anytime a user goes into config mode on a switch and then exits a config change trap will be sent by snmp. Even if the user doesn't make a change it will still send this trap because someone has entered this mode.

Also, it could be another application such as CiscoWorks when it does inventory polling which is doing it to check for config changes.

The best solution would be to use some sort of authentication to tell who is entering config mode.

What version of code is running on this switch?

Thanks but there is no one else who can get into config mode.

Could sso sync be causing this?
