Error when removing SNMP trap hosts on clustered Data ONTAP

Last Updated:

Applies to

Clustered Data ONTAP


Issue 1 : When attempting to remove or add trap hosts using either system snmp traphosts or event destination, an error is displayed that the SNMP and event subsystems must match: 

::> system snmp traphost delete 

Error: command failed: Failed to add or change SNMP destination because all SNMP destinations defined in both the SNMP and event subsystems mustmatch. Use the "system snmp traphost show" or "event destination show-name traphost" commands to see the current list of traphost destinations. Ensure that no other SNMP destinations have been created via the "event destination show" command.

Netapp::> system snmp traphost show ( <> ( <> ( <>
