SNMPD errors in /var/log/messages


I have recently installed the latest kernel update from Redhat (I'm running RHEL4 update 6) and now im getting the error listed below about 6 times a min every five min in /var/log/messages.

I saw somewhere that selinux needed to be disabled and snmpd needed to be restarted and have done both, but im still receiving the errors.

Does anyone know what they mean, are they impacting anything and what the resolution is to stop them.

You might need to reboot, when you disable selinux, you will need to reboot the system to actually "not work". Try it out... maybe it works.
