In order to reproduce certain SNMP related issues, we will sometimes request a sapwalk output file.

How do I run sapwalk?



First, download the sapwalk tool and extract it on the server:

Next, follow these very detailed instructions:

  • In a cmd prompt, change to the directory where the sapwalk.exe file was extracted.
  • Run the sapwalk utility thusly:

    sapwalk2.exe -i (ip address) -v (snmp version) -s 1.3.6 -c (community name) -xv -o (filename).walk

    (ip address) = The IP address of the device at issue
    (snmp version) = The SNMP version the device at issue runs. Valid
    values are:
    (community name) = The community string for accessing the devices MIB.
    Any valid community string with Read permissions can be used.

  • Finally, when sapwalk is done, gather the output file and forward as needed.
