[WIN]HP Sim 7.1 : import old MIBS from HP SIM 5.3

Hello,

 

We have actually in production an old HP SIM 5.3 running on an old legacay hardware.

I installing on a new VM server HP SIM 7.1

 

I can manage to make the new configuration and add all our servers in it.

 

But the last thing i dont know how to do is to import all the MIBS configuration from 5.3 to 7.1

Or at least, how to manage to have an extract how the actual MIBS are configured on the 5.3 version.

 

Do you now a SQL request (i suppose the configuration is save in the database) that list for a mib, the following values :
Trap Name / Event Type / Enable Trap Handling / Category / Severity

 

We dont do a migration because the 5.3 was tweak by some guys long time ago and the migration fail to 6.X version (so i dont imagine with 7.X). And also, i want to start with a fresh install well documented.

 

Thanks for your return.

HPSIM 7.1 comes with latest set of mibs, if you want to downgrade it to 5.3. You will need to unregister all the mibs and then add all from the HPSIM 5.3 mib folder.

 

To get the configuration you can mxmib cli options.

 

Do let me know if you are interested in somthing else.

if it helped, award me Kudos or Points. Thanks :)

Hello Tushar,

 

Thank for your return.

 

mxmib cli dont really answer to my issue.

With, for a MIB named "AAA", i can have all the Trap Name link to this "AAA" mibs.

 

Put i cant have the values for thoses entries :

* Enable Trap Handling

* Category

* Severity

for each Trap Name.

 

And that the part who interess me.

Are you saying that you customized the .MIB files and imported them into your SIM 5.3 installation and would like to port them over to 7.1?

Yes.

 

There is a method to get the actual MIBS configuration ?

but a complete one (with severity, etc).
