Hi James,

I did what you advised an turned on the logging level in snmpd.conf to 3 on
the node where snmpd works wrong and on the node where snmpd works correct.
In the trace-output I can see on the defective node a line
 
simple {version 0, identify risc6000public.1.1, description "SNUX ATM
daemon",
password "muxatmd_password" }

After this command is listed the error-message

simpleOpen rejected (badIdentity): risc6000public.1.1

The above command does not exist on the good node.
The files snmpd.conf and snmpd.peer are the same on bothe nodes.

Best regards
Gerd

I am not certain that you have one problem.  There may be several.
I would turn on the logging level in snmpd to 3 so you can get a trace of
all activity.

Trapgend is a SMUX peer, which requires entries in the snmpd.peers file to
match those in snmpd.conf, otherwise the open will be rejected with the
sort of message you see here.  But I don't know how you could get a logon
from trapgend with a community name of "risc6000public.1.1" since it is
hard coded internally as "nv6000", so this looks like a failure from some
other process/daemon trying to open a connection to snmpd.

Hi,

I have a strange problem and need some help.

We have four SP-Nodes with exactely the same /etc/snmpd.conf-file.
The same Community-Names are defined on the Nodes and the server.
On the Nodes I have started the trapgend und the snmpd.
Only on one node I get the Event-message

Incorrect Community Name (authenticationFailure Trap) public

If I look to the file /usr/tmp/snmpd.log I see the following message

EXEPTIONS: simpleOpen rejected (badIdentity): risc6000public.1.1 (SMUX
127.0.0.1.2230+6)

Where does this come from and how can I solve this problem?

Thanks in Advance
