Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A SNMPv1 snmpwalk from a Solaris system or a network management station for a OID that the Solaris SMA master agent does not support would fail with a error rather than a non-response.

In the case of the network management station this would result in a unexpected failure.
