Setting up sensor with .mib file

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to monitor backup jobs done with ''Veam Backup and Replication''. For that, I want to use the .mib file provided by veeam in order to create the sensor automatically.

I am using the SNMP tester on the Prtg Probe in order to check whether I can get data from the VM Veeam runs on. When requesting the ''device uptime'', I get a satisfying response seen bellow:

24.08.2018 11:36:33 (12 ms) : SNMP V2c
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (16 ms) : Uptime
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (22 ms) : SNMP Datatype: ASN_TIMETICKS
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (25 ms) : -------
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (29 ms) : DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = 297805 ( 49 minutes 38 seconds )
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (34 ms) : SNMP Datatype: ASN_TIMETICKS
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (37 ms) : HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSystemUptime.0 = 806425776 ( 93 days )
24.08.2018 11:36:33 (41 ms) : Done

But when using the .oidlib file, the tester returns the following:

24.08.2018 11:20:58 Start Scan

Found OIDs:
No OIDs found

Furthermore, when scanning for a specific OID I get the following response:

24.08.2018 11:21:07 (8 ms) : Device: 10.254.1.8
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (11 ms) : SNMP V2c
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (15 ms) : Custom OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.31023.1.1.109.0
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (20 ms) : SNMP Datatype: SNMP_EXCEPTION_NOSUCHOBJECT
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (24 ms) : -------
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (45 ms) : Value: No such object (SNMP error # 222)
24.08.2018 11:21:07 (48 ms) : Done

I am new to SNMP and the usage of .mib files, so please excuse me if this is some trivial problem. What I would like to know is, how I get the objects from the .mib file to be recognized properly?

Any help is appreciated very much!

Best Regards,
Dominik

Hi Dominik,

To me it seems you've done everything correctly, SNMP itself is working fine. The device somehow doesn't answer to the SNMP calls for the selected OIDs.

We recommend contacting the vendor regarding this issue.

Thank you!
