The following are existing device issues that have been discovered with other releases. A resolution is included to address the issue, if available.

  • In NetScreen ScreenOS version 5.0, the SNMP sysName variable may not display the actual system hostname on the device. In version 5.0, the SNMP sysNAME variable is not updated when the value is changed on the device. This issue does not apply to NetScreen ScreenOS version 4.0.

  • For the SNMP to display the correct system hostname, the configuration line must be set correctly with the following syntax: set snmp name "<hostname>".

  • The "View Processor CPU" quick command is not supported in the NetScreen ScreenOS versions, up to and including, version 4.X.
