SNMP Error code 27




Getting an SNMPERR_BAD_SEC_NAME (SNMP error # -27) on our UCS system Health sensor.

Can't find any info on what that code means.

Is there a list somewhere?

Cheers. Ringo.

Hi Ringo,

Please enter the settings of the UCS device in PRTG and check the Credentials for SNMP Devices section. Does the username match with the name configured in the device? Does it contain special characters which might cause issues?

Best regards, Felix
