Hi I apologize in advance if this is a daft question. I'm using an snmp trap monitor for a poweredge drac. The trap monitor is working and I can see live traps coming in and being actioned. However even with the .mib file loaded, the OIDs are not resolving.

I've looked through the mib file and I can see definitions for the oid's that I'm looking for... Any ideas?

Hi Quinn

Thanks for getting back to me. I managed to fix the issue I was having.

In the documentation I followed here it says that mibs are loaded and parsed every few minutes. This didn't seem to work for me and I eventually had to restart the monitoring service which fixed the problem.

Hi msperson,

Please make sure that the MIB file that you are using is in the MIB Directory of the service that is doing the monitoring. If you are using a satellite to do the monitoring then make sure the MIB file is on the satellite server in the service's MIB directory.
