I have a strange snmp problem occurring on two windows 2003 SP2 servers.
SNMP will randomly stop responding to my monitoring software. I am
unable to manually walk the servers in question using CLI tools either.
The snmp.exe service is still running on the windows server. I try to
stop the service it just hangs. I then manually kill the service using
the task-manager. i am then able to restart the service using the
service manager. However the same non responsive behavior is still
exhibited. I have at this point only been able to solve this problem
with reboots? Since i use these servers for backup rebooting them is not
really a good option. The systems are fully patched at this time. Anyone
else have any advice.
