  • Switches crashed
  • SNMP query leads to switch reset
  • SNMP request to a specific OID crashes the SecureStack
  • A Fan MIB status query:
snmpget -v 1 -c myUserName .
...crashes the managed switches, with current.log and sysDmp data similar to:

  • A Power Supply MIB status query:
snmpget -v 1 -c myUserName .
...simply returns this response:
Error in packet
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
Failed object: SNMPv2-SMI::cabletron.
  • C5-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • C3-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • C2-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • B5-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • B3-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • B2-Series SecureStack - Firmware
  • CA-Spectrum "watches" added to monitor the state of Securestack fans and power supplies.
  • MIB management application makes SNMP requests to a group of managed SecureStacks.
  • When the queried MIB OID does not exist, the condition is not consistently handled in all cases.
  • The same intelligence in the SNMP agent should be used for the fan table as for the power-supply table.
  • For the C5/C3/B5/B3, upgrade to 6.61 firmware or higher.
  • For the C5/B5, a fix is expected in the next 6.81 firmware release.
  • For the C2/B2, a fix is expected in the next firmware release.
  • Contact GTAC support for assistance, as necessary.
  • As a pre-upgrade workaround; use an SNMP query which contains a valid search argument, for example...
snmpgetnext -v 1 -c myUserName . order to return data for any and all fans that exist on a stack consisting of from one to eight devices.
