RE: [nv-l] Community Name
Something is attempting to access SNMP on your servers sending the traps
with the incorrect community name. You can generate these yourself by trying
to snmpwalk one of the nodes with the incorrect community name and you will
see the trap come into your NetView trapd.log.
Finding the offending application can be a challenge. I had to packet sniff
one of my machines to find out who was sending SNMP packets to my servers
other than me. Come to find out it was my development NetView machine who
wasn't configured correctly that was causing it.

Subject: [nv-l] Community Name
I am seeing the following warnings in the NV server events
A IBM Incorrect Community Name (authenticationFailure Trap)
This error is coming from a number of my AIX servers. I have looked at the
/etc/snmp.conf file and everything looks to be setup properly. Has anyone
else seen these types of warnings? And what was the fix?
Thanks in advance
