Hello, does anyone know what functional use the MIB Setup Wizard has? I've imported MIBs into the SNMPGET probe and from there it would be great if we could then import those OIDs into a template or profile. Is this possible?
The MIBs are only used for the OID description, you have to manually hunt down the OIDs.
I'm not sure I understood... Where do you see the MIB Description after the import with the Wizard?
That's just it, you don't. You have to enter the oid's to get them to show to be able to monitor them. No browsing by description once you have loaded the MIB.
You see it when you are using the MIB Browser in the probe to look at OIDs on specific devices. If you are missing the MIB for certain OIDs, you only see the numeric representations of those OIDs. After importing the corresponding MIB, you would see both the numeric and text representations.
And once you see what you want in the mib browser you can drag and drop it into a template, which can then be drag and dropped onto a device or multiple devices - TA DA!
I'm glad I found this article as I was asking the same question. This probe seems to be just 1 step away from being perfect.
Not sure why the probe can't add the OID's in the mib browser drop down list alongside the default ones to be able to query the mib files we have loaded in the repository and drag the ones we want as monitors.
Near perfect, but stumbles near the finishing line.....
