disable vrrp messages

All,
We have 2 redundant routers connected each configured with vrrp.
The logs of one of them (procurve 5412zl) is filling up with these messages:
W 04/03/07 08:49:02 00783 vrrp: Pkt recd on a non-VRRP Vlan with vid 10

how can i disable this without disabling other warning messages(so only discard vrrp warning messages)

Re: disable vrrp messages

Hi

Configure Vlan10 on the Other VRRP switch and configure a Virtual Router for it and you won't get this message.

Unless you get these Event Log Messages on a Syslog server, Event logs can cleared but not disabled.

Good Luck !!!

Re: disable vrrp messages

maybe i need to explain te setup some more:
we have 2 firewalls which are configured to use vrrp for their vlan's and which are connected to 2 internal switches.
These 2 internal switches are also router for our internal networks and are configured with vrrp. i get these messages on the vlan's where the firewalls are connected on(and where the firewalls will do the vrrp).

Re: disable vrrp messages

Hi

I suggest you block the VRRP messages from its source.

I believe with the firewalls you can block this kind of traffic, and it depends on the firewalls you have.

You can configure VRRP authentication for the messages on the Firewalls.

Good Luck !!!

Re: disable vrrp messages

To disable an entry type in the log, first you need to identify the index number of the entry you want to disable. In this instance, in the event description you can see "00783 vrrp", in this case it is 783:


Name: eventType
Type: OBJECT-TYPE
OID: 1.3.6.1.2.1.16.9.1.1.3
Full path: iso(1).org(3).dod(6).internet(1).mgmt(2).mib-2(1).rmon(16).event(9).eventTable(1).eventEntry(1).eventType(3)
Module: RMON-MIB

Parent: eventEntry
Prev sibling: eventDescription
Next sibling: eventCommunity

Numerical syntax: Integer (32 bit)
Base syntax: INTEGER
Composed syntax: INTEGER
Status: mandatory
Max access: read-write
Value list: 1: none(1)
2: log(2)
3: snmp-trap(3)
4: log-and-trap(4)

Description: The type of notification that the probe will make
about this event. In the case of log, an entry is
made in the log table for each event. In the case of
snmp-trap, an SNMP trap is sent to one or more
management stations.


The default is 4 (log-and-trap) you want to disable it which is 1.

5412(config)# setmib 1.3.6.1.2.1.16.9.1.1.3.783 -i 1

Re: disable vrrp messages

i am involved in servicing laserjets and am just finishing the last of courses to become certified for lj APS.i have been comming to this forum to learn more about these networking configurations since the laserjet end seems to connect and i have the general gist of it,but , does this stuff seem extremely complicated , or is it just me.it seems like there are an endless amount of software,hardware and configurations with a lot of numbers and values.i feel lost in this department.

Re: disable vrrp messages

hobbs,
the snmp stuff works great!
do you know where i can download the mib(instead of pulling it from the device itself) to use as a reference?

I also saw that the snmp "number" you mentioned was also in the log entry itself which was very helpfull.

thanks!

Re: disable vrrp messages

The MIB itself is the RMON-MIB, rfc2819.mib.

http://www.hp.com/rnd/software/MIBs.htm

From the MIB itself, the description is:

logDescription OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX DisplayString (SIZE (0..255))
MAX-ACCESS read-only
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"An implementation dependent description of the
event that activated this log entry."


So there is no list of all possible log types in the MIB file. The closest you can get to a list (that I know of) is with:

5412zl(config)# walkmib 1.3.6.1.2.1.16.9.2.1.4

Hope that helps.

Re: disable vrrp messages

when i run this command it repeats the OID saying unable to create. Is there something else that needs to be done?
