This problem was fixed in net-snmp's 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 branches in May of last year. See http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=112694&aid=2972579&group_id=12694
This problem exists in the 6.2 beta as well.
Now it's too late in RHEL 6.2 development process to fix such bug, only critical bugs are being fixed now. Please contact your Red Hat support to consult possibility of earlier fix than in RHEL 6.3.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Previously, snmpd did erroneously check length of SNMP-TARGET-MIB::snmpTargetAddrRowStatus value in incoming SNMP-SET requests on 64bit platforms, which resulted into snmpd sending error reply to correct SNMP-SET request. In this update, check of SNMP-TARGET-MIB::snmpTargetAddrRowStatus is fixed and it is possible to set it remotely using SNMP-SET messages.
