SNMP protocol is enabled, the right community is set within the switch and Netview... I believe I have the right MIB loaded since I can see all the interfaces under the "OTHER" section.  Can you tell me which MIBS should be loaded just to verify?

The following config section is set in the switch:

set snmp community read-only      <C.Name>
set snmp community read-write     <C.Name>
set snmp community read-write-all <C.Name>
set snmp trap enable  module

My NetView is also running on a W2K machine and this option is working fine. You have to check some things first:

  • Check if your switches have SNMP protocol enabled.
  • Check community names (insert on Specific Nodes or Wildcards at Options-> SNMP).
  • Check loaded MIB files. You can find many MIB files in the Internet by device manufacturer and load them into NetView.

I'm starting to think that Netview is far better off on AIX than it is on Windows.... there are correlation rules that are not supported on Windows, no admin guide, and a much longer list.  We are a complete Windows shop.  Does anyone know if all the functions that are provided in Unix are also available in Linux.  I can get away with having a Linux box in our environment, but purchasing a SUN box is a whole different story.

It works for me.  I have my NetView 7.1.3 plus Fixpack 1 on AIX 5.1 with
my Web Console on Win2K Server.  Does the switch you have selected
support the bridge MIB (RFC1493)??  Has the community name changed on
this switch so that it effectively no longer supports SNMP at all?

I would suspect problems with the switch on this one, rather than NetView.

Mario, do you have the switch OID entered in the  /usr/OV/conf/oid_to_type file with a "B" FLAG, as shown in my example below...
This is an entry for a CISCO cat 6513
You can find the OID that should be there by selecting the object and going to TOOLS/ Object Information MENU
This entry must be in the oid_to_type file with at least the "B" flag.

EXAMPLE: Systems:Cisco Switch:BH
