When I install customized RHEL 6.5 with no GUI, on the Virtualized Platform like Esx Server. I am constantly getting, kernel message
netlink: 12 bytes leftover after parsing attributes.. And this message is dumped into the /var/log/messages file. But When I install RHEL 6.5 without any customization, and select
minimal during package selection. I am not getting this kernel message at all.
What could be the problem?
As per RHEL 6.5 documentation:
The RHEL6.5 has fixed this issue in BZ#927474. But How it is related to net-snmp is not clear?
As when you install RHEl6.5 with/without snmp package it doesn't give any kernel error message?
But when I install the customized RHEL6.5, with selected set of packages, It starts dumping the error message.
Moreover from the RHEL documentation link If the fix is required in net-snmp daemon, then it should always be running, which is not the case, when you don't install the net-snmp package itself. And Still we don't get the kernel message.
Any pointers to solve this, would be a great help!
