At times when troubleshooting an issue with the discovery or monitoring of an SNMP device you may be requested to provide an SAPWALK2 output.
This is also required when you are submitting a new device for vendor certification.
This document will discuss where to obtain the tool and how to run it.
UIM any version
The Sapwalk2 tool is available for windows, Linux (32 and 64bit) and Solaris and can be downloaded from the "MIB Walk Utilities" section of https://devicesupport.ca.com/
The usage for the command is as follows:
