Message:%ASA-3-212012: Unable to write SNMP engine data to persistent storage.
Event 212012 is generated when the SNMP engine data is unable to be written to the file flash:/snmp/context-name,where it is usually stored. The error may be caused by a failure to create the flash:/snmp directory or the flash:/snmp/context-namefile. The error may also be caused by a failure to write to the file.
How could you resolve this situation?
The system administrator should remove the flash:/snmp/context-namefile and all SNMP Version 3 users and then add them again, to recreate the flash:/snmp/context-namefile.
