These responses are listed in Table 2-7. Table 2-7. SNMPv2 Error Messages SNMPv2 Error Message noAccess(6) Description A set to an inaccessible variable was attempted. This typically occurs when the variable has an ACCESS type of not-accessible. wrongType(7) An object was set to a type that is different from its definition. This error will occur if you try to set an object that is of type INTEGER to a string, for example. wrongLength(8) An object's value was set to something other than what it calls for.

If the agent is successful in gathering the requested information, it sends a get-response back to the NMS, where it is processed. This process is illustrated in Figure 2-5. Figure 2-5. get request sequence How did the agent know what the NMS was looking for? One of the items in the get request is a variable binding. A variable binding, or varbind, is a list of MIB objects that allows a request's recipient to see what the originator wants to know. Variable bindings can be thought of as OID=value pairs that make it easy for the originator (the NMS, in this case) to pick out the information it needs when the recipient fills the request and sends back a response.

3 of Chapter 1 we explored the notion of traps at a general level; now we'll look at them in a bit more detail. Figure 2-9 shows the trap-generation sequence. Figure 2-9. Trap generation The trap originates from the agent and is sent to the trap destination, as configured within the agent itself. The trap destination is typically the IP address of the NMS. No acknowledgment is sent from the NMS to the agent, so the agent has no way of knowing if the trap makes it to the NMS. Since SNMP uses UDP, and since traps are designed to report problems with your network, traps are especially prone to getting lost and not making it to their destinations.
