java.lang.RuntimeException: Can't resolve snmp_received
CauseAuthentication Manager services were restarted and although it appeared all services started, they apparently had not. The machine named snmp_receiver was not able to be resolved. That machine, which was in the Access Control List of the SNMP configuration, no longer existed.
ResolutionTo resolve this issue,
  1. We put an entry in the local host file of the Authentication Manager server for a machine named snmp_receiver with an IP address that was resolvable.
  2. We stopped and started the Authentication Manager Services.
  3. We were then able to access the Security Console. SNMP was enabled, under Setup > Instances then select Network Management (SNMP).
  4. We were then able to remove the machine from the Access Control List.
  5. SNMP was disabled and we saved those changes.
