thank you very much for your KB-Post! Please try adding a simple SNMP System Uptime Sensor to the device in PRTG, that is the HP-UX server. Does the SNMP System Uptime Sensor then work? Or does it throw an error? If so, which error message is shown?

best regards.

Okay, that means SNMP is generally available. But HP-UX does not seem to respond to the standard OIDs PRTG SNMP Linux sensors use. We can only suggest to check if HP offers any MIB - Files, that you can import with our MIB Importer to monitor this.

Okay, I don't know How configure MIB into the server "PRTG"; we are shopping the license for this product. So, we need a course or more information for management the product.

I'm downloaded the "mib" from the page of HP, anyway i will open a call for ask to HP for the MID....

If you can send me a email with tipe of course or trainning about "prtg", I'll be grateful...

My license is for:

I'm sorry, we ourselves do not offer trainings in PRTG. Maybe our Video Tutorials can help you a bit already. Otherwise, if you can tell us your location, we may have a partner near you, that can help you with trainings.
Importing an MIB into PRTG is really easy, just follow the steps outlined on the page of the MIB Importer.
