APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The incorrect data type (INTEGER32) is being returned for
usmStatsUnknownEngineIDs during SNMPv3 EngineID discovery. Data
type should be COUNTER32 per RFC 3414.

Also the datatype for usmStatsNotInTimeWindow is also incorrect
during time synchronization. It should also be COUNTER32.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE70360 :
-----------------------------
The SNMP agent code has been changed to return a data type of
COUNTER32 for both usmStatsUnknownEngineIDs and
usmStatsNotInTimeWindow.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE70360 :
--------------------------------
None.


Activation Instructions


None.




Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI66807 :
=================================================

Before applying or removing this PTF, the SNMP server must be ended
using the command:  ENDTCPSVR *SNMP

After applying or removing this PTF, the SNMP server must be restarted
using the command:  STRTCPSVR *SNMP

Note:  A backup copy of the *FILE object QUSRSYS/QATOSCFG from a
pre-7.1 release is necessary if you intend to recover SNMP attributes
and community configuration that were lost after an upgrade from a
pre-7.1 system to either 7.1 to 7.2.  If a backup copy is unavailable,
the SNMP attributes and community configuration will need to be
manually configured.

Before applying this PTF, the SNMP server must be ended using the
ENDTCPSVR *SNMP command.

After applying this PTF, if it is necessary to recover the SNMP
settings from a pre-7.1 system, restore the *FILE object
QUSRSYS/QATOSCFG.  This must be done prior to starting the SNMP server
or prior to running any SNMP related command.

The SNMP server may then be started again using the STRTCPSVR *SNMP
command.

SNMP must be ended prior to applying or removing the PTF using the
command: ENDTCPSVR *SNMP

After applying or removing the PTF, SNMP must be restarted using the
command: STRTCPSVR *SNMP


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
