MIB importer parse error

I am trying to import a MIB from an equipment manufacturer but the importer tool reports an error (::= expected).

The syntax looks right to me but it clearly isn't..

The "::=" error occurs at the "EddystoneBroadcast" OBJECT-IDENTITY line below:-

IMPORTS
    MODULE-IDENTITY, OBJECT-TYPE, NOTIFICATION-TYPE,
    Integer32, Unsigned32, Gauge32, TimeTicks
        FROM SNMPv2-SMI
    DisplayString, TruthValue, DateAndTime
        FROM SNMPv2-TC
    idl
        FROM IDL-SMI;

EddystoneBroadcast OBJECT-IDENTITY
    STATUS  current
    DESCRIPTION
        "Eddystone Broadcast Ltd."
    ::= { idl 3 }

How can I get the importer to load the file?

Hey edrixon,

Please share the download link for the MIB file in question with us so we can have a closer look to the issue.

Thank you and best regards,

Further to this, I have tried the same MIB file with the iReasoning MIB browser and that loads the file successfully. With that tool, I can do an SNMP walk through the Eddystone OIDs...

Hey edrixon.

as you can see in the MIB validator the MIB file EDDYSTONE-E2023-MIB.mib contains several syntax errors which makes it impossible for the MIB-Importer to successfully complete the import. So, please contact the vendor and ask for a fixed version of this MIB file without syntax errors.

Also, there a re some minor errors in the IDL-SMI.mib file. So, please ask for a fixed version of this MIB file as well. Once you have the new files which have RFC-conform syntax, the import should succeed.

Best regards,
Sven
