RHEL 7: SNMP V3 trap does not work anymore with cimserver
2015-04-21 16:05:46 GMT
We are trying to explore snmp V3 traps on RHEL 7. We are getting following error from cimserver side.
“Failed to deliver an indication: Snmp Indication Handler failed to send the trap: USM unknown security name (no such user exists)”
When we drill down further and check the function on net-snmp i.e usm_get_user_from_list returns null and hence the comparison falls.
Do you know how to populate this list and which file does it read to populate this list?
Mainly we want to know how this list gets populated and does it use snmpd by any chance and use any snmpd.conf file?
Currently we use wbemexec and xml file to subscribe and provide all security name, auth key and priv key in the same xml file.
I also see that on RHEL 7 there are some fixes around this usm user in the change log i.e
net-snmp-5.7.2/ChangeLog: - make usm_get_user_from_list() handle a bogus initial user flag.
net-snmp-5.7.2/ChangeLog: - use usm_get_user_from_list to ask not to return the default initial user.
This has created any regression on snmpv3 trap functionality in cimserver?
