You didn't mention what  version of NetView you have but this problem (nor
recognizing the BITS construct) is APAR IY06997.  An e-fix is available for both
NetView 5.1 and 6.0, and the permanent fix will be part of 5.1.4 and 6.0.1.

If you like you can just comment out the entire BITS construct since it is not
used by the MIB browser nor by mib2trap (they use the same parser).  It is only
there for human consumption -- to tell you what the returned bit values mean.
Alternatively you can contact Support and get the e-fix.

Subject:  [NV-L] mib2trap and BITS SYNTAX.

I have a CISCO MIB that I am trying to convert using mib2trap but the process
fails at any definition with BITS as a SYNTAX type in the OBJECT-TYPE.

The format of the stanza is like the following :

     MAX-ACCESS  read-write
etc etc...

mib2trap returns an error "Should be ACCESS({): On or around line 4563 (its a
big MIB!) but if I remove all stanzas with references to BITS mib2trap works
fine. According to my SNMP book by William Stallings BITS is a valid SNMPv2 type
but mib2trap either differs on this point or the definitions are cactus.

Any ideas out there?
