Issue/Introduction

This KB steps through the process of adding MIBs to the snmptd probe. 

Environment

Release : 8.x, 9.x, 20.x

Component : UIM - SNMPTD

Resolution

In this example the vnxe_alert.mib is going to be added. 

1 view the mib in a text editor and review the EXPORTS section for dependency MIBS.
Here is the beginning of vnxe_alert.mib
Vnxe-MIB DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN 

IMPORTS
    MODULE-IDENTITY, OBJECT-TYPE, NOTIFICATION-TYPE, OBJECT-IDENTITY, 
    enterprises
        FROM SNMPv3-SMI

    DisplayString, TimeStamp
        FROM SNMPv3-TC;

These are the entries that show the MIBs it depends upon:
FROM SNMPv3-SMI
FROM SNMPv3-TC

2 copy the needed MIBs to the $\Nimbsoft\MIBS folder at the primary hub or which ever system the IM console is running at, and at the robot with the snmptd probe.
In this case these are the MIBs copied:
vnxe_alert.mib
SNMPv3-SMI
SNMPv3-TC

3 go to the IM console and open the snmptd probe configure GUI

4 click the Launch MIB Setup Wizard button (middle icon)

Click Next 
Click the green + 


Browse to the MIBS folder and select and add SNMPv3-SMI and then SNMPv3-TC and then vnxe_alert.mib.

Click Next

Check the box for 'Reload new MIBS on 'Finish'. 

Click Finish

Review the probe log to ensure there are no errors loading any of the mibs.
