Cause

The root cause is an error in the mib file.

Environment

Release: Any
Component:

Resolution

The work-around is to change the name of the mib inside the mib file itself and recompile. Change the following:

NETEGRITY DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN

To read as follows:

 NETEGRITY-MIB DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN

Then recompile the mib.

Additional Information
