When checking the logs of a Solaris V10 node, you notice that SolarWinds is sending an invalid community string to the node which eventually breaks SNMP monitoring on the Solaris node until the SMA Service is restarted:
ov 6 12:35:14 /usr/lib/snmp/snmpdx: [ID 702911 daemon.error] community_check() : bad community from localhost
Nov 6 12:35:14 /usr/lib/snmp/snmpdx: [ID 702911 daemon.error] session_open() failed for a pdu received from localhost.62444
Nov 6 12:35:15 /usr/lib/snmp/snmpdx: [ID 702911 daemon.error] community_check() : bad community from localhost
Nov 6 12:35:15 /usr/lib/snmp/snmpdx: [ID 702911 daemon.error] session_open() failed for a pdu received from localhost.62444
NPM 10.2 and later
Solaris 10 comes with SMA and Net-SNMP, which can cause a conflict in community strings, thus creating the error to display in the logs. For more information, see Solaris 10 and Net-SNMP (Content provided by Christopher Paquin, available at https://fatmin.com/, obtained on November 10, 2016.)
