Procurve 5308 SNMP Messages and MIBS

Procurve 5308 SNMP Messages and MIBS

I loaded all the mibs in HPSIM for the Procurve 5308 from the HP site.

The Procurve is sending me "Generic Unregistered traps" with the following description:

Enterprise OID String. 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.14.12.1
Generic Trap ID. 6
Specific Trap ID. 5

It seems that the mibs for the Procurve are incomplete. This is not a HPSIM issue.

I downloaded and installed the MIBS from the following site: http://www.hp.com/rnd/software/MIBs.htm

I loaded pretty much all of them except for a couple which could not compile. I also downloaded several mibs that were prereqs and were missing from this package.

The MIBS that I was not able to compile and add to HPSIM are the following "rfc2863,
rfc2674_p, rfc2674_q, hc-rmon, hpicpiproute, hpicfxrrp, ieee8021pae, ieee8023lag, hp-sn-trap"

Anyone has had any success with this?
Thanks,

The only thing I found was in the hpicfipRoute.mib.
If you open up hpicfipRoute.mib and add RowStatus.

So the top of that file should look like this:

HP-ICF-IP-ROUTING DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN
IMPORT
OBJECT-TYPE, MODULE-IDENTITY, Integer32
FROM SNMPv2-SMI
PhysAddress, RowStatus

Re: Procurve 5308 SNMP Messages and MIBS

The traps you are getting are Fault Finder traps. The Type indicates the type of fault detected by the agent.
1 Bad Driver
2 Bad Transceiver
3 Bad Cable
4 Cable too long
5 Over Bandwidth
6 Broadcast Storm
7 Partition
8 Misconfigured
9 Polarity Reversal
10 Network Loop
11 Loss of Link

Hope that helps.

Re: Procurve 5308 SNMP Messages and MIBS

Thanks for the answer,

The error itself doesnt really bother me. I see it on the switch itself and it is normal since its set to High Sensitivity. Our Toshiba laptops generate a lot of warning. They seem to have very low quality NIC cards.

For the hpicfiproute.mib, I did not see any trap definitions in it but it could always be the one I am missing.

I cannot import it into HPSIM, it seems to contain sintax errors.

This is what I get when I try to import it:
IMPORTING CFG hpicfiproute.cfg
Error: File 'hpicfiproute.cfg' Error reading MIB: MIB node has no parent Line: 105
AN ERROR OCCURRED EXECUTING THE COMMAND

You need to have HP-ICF-OID loaded first.

HP-ICF-OID is loaded without erros into HPSIM.

Is it possible that the file I have is incomplete?

Martin,
I too have had a similar import issue but think I have it sorted. Yes, you are correct - some files seem to be incomplete.

It looks like each OBJECT IDENTIFIER line of the cfg file defines an object using another object - which has to have already been defined itself.

For example, if you had:
lgpConTable OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { lgpConditions 3 }
...you would want to see an "lgpConditions OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::=" line somewhere before it.

I fixed my errors by opening other compiled MIBs (CFGs) that had loaded OK, found the definition line missing from my non-working CFG, then added it in just in front of the error line & re-import.
This sorted it out for me.

Hope this info helps.

Gareth.
