Abstract

OSP-F/QWPSNMPD-T/QWPSNMPD-MSGCPD337A *LAN 3812 SNMP PRINT
WRITERS FAIL IMMEDIATELY

Error Description

Cume PTF C5135 was applied to R720 (also happens after apply    
Tech Refresh #10). After restart of system from applying PTFs,  
*LAN 3812 SNMP print writers will no longer start. Fails        
immediately with MSGCPD337A and MSGCPF3473 in the print writer  
joblog.                                                        
Communication trace shows that no UDP packet is sent (SNMP      
packet) to printer, and IBM i ends the connection after        
establishing an initial successful connection to port 9100      

Problem Summary

*LAN 3812 SNMP print writers fail as soon as they are started,  
with MSGCPD337A and MSGCPF3473 in the writer's joblog.          
                                                               
A communication trace shows that no UDP packet is sent to the  
printer's SNMP port, and IBM i ends the connection it had      
successful established to port 9100.                            

Problem Conclusion

The driver program was calling snmpGetnext() with a PDU type    
that is only valid for snmpGet().  The driver has always done  
this, but until recently the error was tolerated by SNMP.
