snmp error 2



I have 2 machines setup in my DMZ one running Windows 2003 and the other 2008. The machine on 2003, I was able to setup all my sensors, including SNMP. However on the 2008 box, I get an error when trying to install any SNMP sensor - No Such Name (SNMP error #2).

Any ideas?

by default is SNMP not available on Windows machines. Error #2 appears if the OID address is not available or valid.

Please check the settings on the machine and try our SNMP tester to connect to the server.
