Gents,

I followed that article http://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/11433-how-to-monitor-windows-dhcp-scope-release and created an custom snmp sensor with corresponding OID, but PRTG gives me "No such Name". What can I do / test to find out what the error is?

Regards, Marcus

dhcp prtg snmp

The first thing that I would ask you to check is whether the SNMP service is installed and running on the server and make sure with the SNMP tester that you are able to read the uptime of the device. If you can read the uptime from the PRTG server using the SNMP tester, then the SNMP service is set up correctly.

If it is but you still cannot read the value you want, try and walk the OID's in that article i.e. walk 1.3.6.1.4.1.311.1.3 and post back the results.

What happened when you ran the uptime scan? Did you get a result? Have you checked out this article about setting up SNMP on Windows?

Ok, Update: SNMP Walk over 1.3.6.1.4.1.311.1.3.2.1.1.2 works now, but when I do the same check with the field "Custom OID" above it says No such name Also PRTG returns "No such name".

Any ideas?

The issue that you are having is that the OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.311.1.3.2.1.1.2 is a base OID that then has other indexes for information. If you want to get a specific value from the server, you would need to use one of the sub-oid's from that base OID as a custom OID in the sensor and then it should work. If you post the result of the walk I can explain which is which better.
