(SNMP) Generic Unregistered - VMware V5

Hello,

 

HP SIM V6.3 up to hotfix 14

 

We were not receiving traps, so we checked the 'Event filter settings' to be 'Accept unregistered events' to see if unknown traps were received.

So now we see '(SNMP) Generic Unregistered' events with 'Trap details'.

Enterprise OID String. 1.3.6.1.4.1.6876.4.90

Generic Trap ID. 6

Specific Trap ID. 401

 

The system is an 'ESXi V5' system.

 

So i thought the VMWARE MIBS supplied with V6.3 are old and downloaded the V9 MIB file from the SIM download page buth they are the same.

So i downloaded the MIB's from VMware.

Followed the doc to keep the order suggested by VMware. Did a 'mcompile x.mib' and 'mxmib -a x.cfg' for each until this one.

 

the mcopile was ok.

 

C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\mibs>mcompile VMWARE-VMINFO-MIB.mib

- How to proceed from here?

Re: (SNMP) Generic Unregistered - VMware V5

Hi,

 

The problem is the variable in line 136 is not defined

Check other vmware esx mib to find this definition and paste before

or

paste this definition variable above the parent definition

 

for example :

vmware OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { enterprises 6876 }
vmwProductSpecific OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { vmware 4 }
vmwNotifications OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { vmware 0 }
vmwESX OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { vmwProductSpecific 1 }
vmwESXNotifications OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { vmwESX 0 }

 

Regards, Christophe
