GETNEXT loop bug in SNMP response RESPONSE[requestID=120784653,
errorStatus=General variable binding error(5), errorIndex=1,
VBS[1.3.6.1.4.1.2620.1.6.7.5.1.4 = endOfMibView]]
karaf.log:2013-11-12 07:36:08,010 | WARN | Response Pool.0 |

Solution:

We will attempt a query for all OIDs as requested by the DA. This warning is seen because the MIB discovery is querying OIDs that are not supported by the device. There is no loss of functionality with this warning and the functionality will be enhanced in 2.3.2 where this warning will only be seen if it is not due to an "endOfMibView".
