Opened: Jul 16, 2013
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

On VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms, the SNMP sysObjectID OID reports the ID of the Chassis. This differs from the behavior on VIPRION 4xxx-series platforms, where the SNMP sysObjectID OID reports the ID of the Blade.

Impact

SNMP queries to identify the System ID of VIPRION platforms will identify different classes of hardware component on VIPRION 2xxx-series vs. 4xxxx-series platforms.

Conditions

This occurs on VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms: - C2xxx-series chassis - B2xxx-series blades

Workaround

None

Fix Information

On VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms, the SNMP sysObjectID OID now reports the ID of the Blade, to match the behavior on VIPRION 4xxx-series platforms. Previously, SNMP sysObjectID reported the ID of the Chassis on VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms.

Behavior Change

On VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms, the SNMP sysObjectID OID now reports the ID of the Blade, to match the behavior on VIPRION 4xxx-series platforms. Previously, SNMP sysObjectID reported the ID of the Chassis on VIPRION 2xxx-series platforms.
