SNMP Custom Sensor Error



I am trying to add a custom SNMP Sensor using an OID obtained by using a MIB Browser on an Equallogic SAN. However I am getting an error indicating "No Such Name (SNMP error #2). I have some traffic monitors set up already but would like to add some custom monitors.

can you please use our SNMP Tester (https://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester) to scan against the target device with this OID? Which result do you get?

Best Regards.

I have similar problem, the SNMP OID that I know is valid as it works in MIB Browser and snmpget does not work win the PRTG. returns No Such Name (SNMP error #2) It is a 64bit counter so the query should be V2c. here is the output form the paessler test tool

How do I force PRTG to use SNMP v2c?

You can check/change the SNMP Version used by PRTG in the Settings of a device/group. It's in the "Credentials for SNMP Devices".
