This is a known bug in the MIB and a fix should appear in the next revision of
the 802.3 spec.
There are a number of similar objects with the same bug.  The range should be
(0..65535) on all of them.  The proposed fix is to deprecate these objects and
replace them with corrected equivalents.  There are some other fixes pending
also.

Hi,

  I am not sure if this is the right group for this question;
  but mail to 'stds-802-3-trunking@majordomo.ieee.org' does not seem
  to work.

  I see the following inconsistency between the dot3adAggActorSystemPriority
  and dot3adAggPortActorSystemPriority.

  dot3adAggPortActorSystemPriority is defined to be 2 octets; but
  its range is only from 0 to 255. ( IMHO, it should be 0 .. 65535 ).

 > dot3adAggPortActorSystemPriority OBJECT-TYPE
 >   SYNTAX       INTEGER (0..255)
 >   MAX-ACCESS   read-write
 >   STATUS       current
 >   DESCRIPTION

  while dot3adAggActorSystemPriority is also defined to be
  2 octets; but its range is from 0..65535.

  Any reason for this inconsistency ?
