MIB Update Failure Messages, SIM 6.2

Last week, I tried to compile and register the latest VMware MIBs into my SIM 6.2 installation. Apparently the operation was not successful because I’ve started getting a set of 12 error messages “MIB Update Failure and “Start MIB Import” (samples below) several times a day.

I unregistered the VMware MIBs and rebooted the CMS but I continue to get the error messages. Does anyone know how to make them stop?
Thanks!

Hi Suzan,

By default, if an event is received which applies to a MIB which is not registered, the event will be discarded. Receipt of unregistered events can be enabled from Options ô Events ô Event Filter.

If your MIB is not register sucessfully or You want to unregister MIB use mxmib command.
e.g
mxmib -d Unregisters a MIB, , from the HP Systems Insight Manager database.

if you want to disable this event use --#ENABLE false

Please refer to MIB guide for more info.
http://www.hp.com/wwsolutions/misc/hpsim-helpfiles/simsnmp.pdf


Also Event that you are recieving is informational which can be ignored.

hope this helps,
aftab

Aftab - Thanks for getting back to me. The problem MIBs have already been unregistered so I don't believe your additional comments on the -#ENABLE flag and ignoring the event apply. Even after unregistering the MIBs, I'm continuing to get several hundred "MIB Update Failure" "Start MIB Import" messages a day, in spite of the fact that the MIBS are unregistered, deleted, and the SIM server has been rebooted.

Hi Suzan,

you may always verify using the command shared earlier whether MIBs are sucessfully unregistered from the HP SIM.

You can stop unregistered events inside SIM under options-> Events-> Events filter settings disable accept unregistered events.

thanks,
Aftab

Aftab- The MIBs are indeed successfully unregistered and unregistered events are already disabled in SIM.

Hi Suzan,


I tried to import this mib and it is not giving any issues. This is not MIBKIT related issue. From SIM side it is working fine.


Thanks,

Thanks for the update. After multiple reboots, the messages finally stopped. I will go ahead and close this item.
