Issue:

 

 

In this particular issue SNMP was changed from SNMPv1 to SNMPv3                                                           

 

 

Cause:

 

 

On looking at the SNMPv3 config INFORMS were set to ON   
   
    --SNMPv3 Entries-------------------------------   
   
    SNMP Informs = 1 (ON)   
   
    Informs are like an acknowledgement that a trap has been received. The trap recipient will send an 'inform' or 'ack' to acknowledge that the trap has been received and so the trap originator knows that it has been received and is not often used
                                                           

 

 

Resolution:

 

 

Turn INFORMS off and check if that resolves your issue.   
    Switch:root> snmpconfig --set snmpv3   
        
    SNMP Informs Enabled (true, t, false, f): [false] false
