Caveat:  this command is depreecated that's why it's no longer visible from the 

Caveat2: if your purpose for loading mibs is to be able to select the
element as a target of data collections/thresholds, you'll be
dispappointed to find that the snmpcollect GUI can't see the mib's
loaded by xnmloadmib2 (because that gui uses xnmbrowser which sees the
v1 mib tree only).

Which leads us to: What is your purpose for loading these mibs?

About the only thing loading v2 mibs in this way accomplishes is that
you can tghen use xnmbrowser2 to browse the mib hierarchy
interactively.  I'm not even sure if trapd uses that v2 hierarchy for
resolving OID's in traps?  Perhaps someone else does.
