Message: %ASA-3-212011: SNMP engineBoots is set to maximum value.Reason:%s User intervention necessary.
Event 212011 is generated when the device rebooted 214783647 times, which is the maximum allowed value of the engineBoots variable, or an error reading the persistent value from flash memory occurred. The reason string is specified in the message.
How could you resolve this situation?
If the reason is 'device reboots', the administrator must delete all SNMP Version 3 users and add them again to reset the engineBoots variable to 1. All subsequent Version 3 queries will fail until all users have been removed. If the reason is 'error accessing persistent data', the administrator must delete the context-specific file, then delete all SNMP Version users, and add them again to reset the engineBoots variable to 1. All subsequent Version 3 queries will fail until all users have been removed.
