Introduction: 

 No added object is displayed on MIB browser, even though the mib file is already added to MIB repository on MIB setup wizard.

 The cause could be a loading mib file failure.

 

Instructions: 

 snmptd/snmpget probe will record results of loading mib files on snmptd.log/snmpget.log if loglevel is more than "3".

 Therefore, user can check loading mib file is succeeded or not with procedure below.

 

 1. Open [Raw Configure] dialog on Admin Console.

 2. Set value of /setup/loglevel key to "3" or more, then apply the change.

 3. Deactivate the probe.

 4. Activate the probe, then the probe will start to load mib files.

 5. Check snmptd.log/snmpget.log

 

 Here is an example which snmptd probe failed to load mib file. The cause is inappropriate mib file format (no object identifier is specified, "::= { enterprises xxxx }" is missing).
