This response path, on the new Cisco 2921 router with IOS 15.0, is not working in either version of eHealth - 6.0 through 6.2.2.

After creating the test in the eHealth motif UI, on the next poll eHealth sends the set requests to the Cisco device.

The following error was returned:

Error: the request referenced an incorrect community or index, or an unsupported MIB) (Try checking that the latency partner is reachable from the router. Cisco RttMon polling received snmp error noSuchName while in state CrmSentNormalPoll).,None,Received an SNMP Error

Looking at the request / response using Advanced Logging for SNMP or a sniffer trace the following was determined:

genErr 5 = An error occurred other than one indicated by a more specific
error code in this table.

[ERRINDEX ] 1 <-----There's a problem with the 1st OID in the request
which is:

 	Object rttMonCtrlAdminStatus 	
 	Type RowStatus 	

From all appearances the router is refusing to setup the test, or the packet never made it to the destination.

It was requested that the customer open a TAC issue with Cisco to determine the cause of the failure.


The IP SLA engineer from Cisco confirmed the issue is definitely a bug in the 15.0M version of IOS.
The problem was apparently not present in the 15.1T IOS versions.
Please reference Cisco bug ID CSCtk99753.
