RFC 3416, "Version 2 of the Protocol Operations for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)", December 2002

Source of RFC: snmpv3 (ops)

Errata ID: 3402
Status: Rejected
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 3 says:

max-bindings INTEGER ::= 2147483647

It should say:

max-bindings ::= INTEGER (2147483647)


According to section 4.2 of the ASN.1 spec, the grammar for the value notation is
ValueDefinition ::= identifier Type "::=" Value

The current text conforms to this grammar, and the usage in this particular case
is closely analogous to the example the ASN.1 standard gives in that same

It looks like the submitter wants to change the value definition into a
type definition, which to me would be inconsistent with how the the SNMP
specification employs max-bindings.
