We have an issue with SNMP and one of our filers. ssh/web access towards the filer is fine, indicating that routing etc. is ok, but this error message keeps pop'ing up in the console:
[snmp.agent.resp.failed:warning]: Could not send response to host : <ip of host> : reason : Failure could be due to either DNS/gateway misconfiguration or takeover/giveback in progress
Timeout, server not responding.
This filer is located off-site, and we access it through a VPN.
The filer is running Netapp Release 7.3.2.

Thanks for that MMS, can you elaborate?
were you seeing the same error? I am getting it on one of my DR filers and snmp, dns and network configs are all fine.
did you just do
route add <ip address> <gateway> then the erorrs stopped appearing on the CLI?
is this issue not the same as netapp bug 344812?

I don't know about the netapp bug, but the problem (and error messages) disappeared after I added the static route with the route command you are referring to. That's it, not much to elaborate on.

What about the static route which you seting . If you use the default gateway as gateway ?
fas3240_01> route -s
Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Interface
default 192.168.2.253 UGS 35 1015295 vif-service
The filer default gateway is 192.168.2.253 .
Tue Aug 2 17:07:16 CST [fas3240_01: snmp.agent.resp.failed:warning]: Could not send response to host : 192.168.2.35 : reason : Failure could be due to either DNS/gateway misconfiguration or takeover/giveback in progress
we can add the following static route:
route add 192.168.2.35 192.168.2.253 1
Is right ?
