sysDescr will be displaying older version.


1. configure SNMP 2. upgrade system with live upgrade 3. check system version using SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr (it will be pointing to older version) example: SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: Linux 3.10.0-1160.62.1.F5.1.el7_8.x86_64 : Appliance services version <older_version>
