"no snmp trap link-status" this command is accepted but a syslog msgs seen


CAT 6500 running IOS version:


Partial config:


interface GigabitEthernet2/23

bandwidth 1000000

ip address 10.x.x.x

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no ip proxy-arp

ip authentication mode eigrp 45 md5

ip authentication key-chain eigrp 45 xxxxx

ip summary-address eigrp 45 10.x.x.x. 5

ip summary-address eigrp 45 10.y.y.y 5

load-interval 30

delay 1

udld port aggressive

no snmp trap link-status

Note that logging event link-status is disabled by default so "no logging event link-status" command is not displayed in this configuration.

The config would normally have a line that reads logging event link-status to enable link status events being logged.

Also note that snmp link status events are disabled to be thorough but I believe the error is being generated by syslog as indicated below, in this instance when we bounced Gi2/23 interface.

So why are syslog messages generated for Gi2/23 in spite of saying no snmp trap link-status under this interface.
