 APAR (Authorized Program Analysis Report)

Abstract

OSP SNMP AGENT IS RETURNING THE WRONG DATA TYPE FOR
USMSTATSUNKNOWNENGINEIDS ON SNMPV3 ENGINEID DISCOVERY

Error Description

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 usmStatsNotInTimeWindows is also          
incorrect during time synchronization. It should also be        
COUNTER32.                                                      

Problem Summary

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.      

Problem Conclusion

The SNMP agent code has been changed to return a data type of  
COUNTER32 for both usmStatsUnknownEngineIDs and                
usmStatsNotInTimeWindow.
