How do you configure a new SNMP link using Developer Studio 3.5.0?

I'm trying to configure an SNMP link to monitor an older Liebert UPS with no success.

I've had no issue establishing links to CISCO Switches to monitor port status as it would appear that Ovation DS 3.5.0 came pre-loaded with MIBs to accommodate.

Below is a snippet of the "snmp_config" file that I loaded using Ovation Developer Studio.

All of the configured points are showing bad quality.  What am I missing?

I was able to connect via snmp to the UPS using a standard MIB browser application on the same host workstation.

    have you try to copy UPS mib file into ovation interface station?
    1 Add MIB file
    (1) We used drop211 as snmp interface station
    (2) Find below directory at drop211:
    C:\Ovation\snmp\mibs,copy the UPS mib file in this folder. Make your own file name, like:UL33-MIB。
    (3) Find below directory
    C:\Ovation\snmp\config,open snmp.conf,add UL33-MIB。
    Notice: file name must ended with -mib and its extension should be mib or txt.
    mibdirs C:/ovation/snmp/mibs
    mibs IP-MIB;IF-MIB;FDDI-SMT73-MIB;CISCO-STACK-MIB;LIEBERT-UPSTATION-GXT-UPS-MIB;UL33-MIB;
    mibfile C:/ovation/snmp/mibs/mib.txt
  • Adding to Tim's feedback, I'll also mention that Ovation owners/users have access to detailed networking whitepapers on the Ovation Users' Group website. The list of whitepapers includes one on SNMP.

    Thanks Tim!

    Now, do I need to modify the "mib.txt" file located here: C:/ovation/snmp/mibs/mib.txt  in order to reference my newly added mib for the UPS?

    James:
    we didnot modify that file.

    Still not working.

    I've copied the MIB file to: C:\Ovation\snmp\mibs
    I've modified the snmp config file to included the MIB: (C:\Ovation\snmp\config\snmp.conf)

    See below.
    mibdirs C:/ovation/snmp/mibs
    mibs IP-MIB;IF-MIB;FDDI-SMT73-MIB;CISCO-STACK-MIB;LIEBERT-UPSTATION-GXT-UPS-MIB; NEWUPS-MIB
    mibfile C:/ovation/snmp/mibs/mib.txt

    The mib.txt file seems to reference the IP-MIB; IF-MIB directly which would explain why I haven't experienced any issues with the cisco switches.
