Try the following tests from the Data Collector that will be used to discover and manage the device. If both fail it validates the problem is environmental. Are there firewalls or ACL's or other tools controlling communications that might be causing the problem?

  2. Run a MIB dump against device using the sapwalk2 utility or the snmpwalk command.
