Description

The initial deployment of CN1610/CN1601 cluster switches using RCF (Reference Configuration File) version 1.0 configured an SNMP community string of "netapp". All subsequent RCF versions use the community string "cshm1!" instead and no longer use "netapp".

When the RCF is upgraded from v1.0 to v1.1 or later, the new community string "cshm1!" is added but the original (and now deprecated) community string "netapp" is not removed. Therefore the community string "netapp" should be removed manually after RCF v1.1 or later has been applied after RCF v1.0.

Note1: This only affects switches that had RCF v1.0 installed originally. Switches initially installed with RCF v1.1 or later are not affected.

Note2: Changing or removing the community string "chsm1!" may break the Cluster Switch Health Monitoring (CSHM).
