|The current operational state of the RIP Protocol.
Changing the state of the etsysRip2ExtAdminStatus object may
effect the state of this object. If etsysRip2ExtAdminStatus is
set to adminStatusDown, this object's status is changed to
operStatusGoingDown. Once the RIP process has finished
cleaning up its routing table and freeing its resources, the
status is changed to operStatusDown.
If etsysRip2ExtAdminStatus is set to adminStatusUp, this
object's status is changed to operStatusGoingUp. After RIP
allocates its resources and begins operation, the status of
this object changes to operStatusUp.
If there are problems acquiring the resources needed to operate
the RIP protocol, the status changes to operStatusActFailed.
