The NIC Command table contains an entry for each of the
manageable Analog Modem NIC entity in the chassis. It
provides a means through which to take specific actions on
one or more NICs in the NAS chassis.
A unique value for each manageable Analog Modem NIC entity
in the chassis. The value of this object matches the value
of the index of the corresponding manageable Analog Modem
NIC entity in the entity table of the chassis MIB.
This object is a generic read-write variable that a
Management Station (MS) can use to guarantee that the
results from a given command are the results of a command
issued by that specific MS. Each MS must SET a unique
value to this object when doing commands and GET the value
of this object together with amnicCmdReqId and
amnicCmdResult to detect interference from other MSs.
This object contains the value of the request-id field in
the SNMP PDU which invoked the current or most recent
command or test on this NIC Card. If the request-id is
unknown or undefined, this object contains the value zero.
In some cases, the NIC may be in a state such that certain
commands could adversely affect connections. In such
cases, a command request with this object not present or
set to noForce will result in a warning. If the operator
elects to ignore such warnings, this object can be set to
force in a subsequent issue of the command to cause the
command to be carried out regardless of its potentially
The value of this object upon test completion is dependent
on the value of nicCmdFunction used to invoke the command.
In the case of action commands, the value of this object is
zero if the command was successful, and indicates a further
description of what went wrong if it was unsuccessful. In
the case of tests, the value here is a bit mapped result of
each of the sub-tests performed.
