Hi there,

Thank you very much for the request.

Does the overall connection work? Please try to add a SNMP Uptime Sensor to the device within PRTG and check if that works.

If you receive a valid response with that sensor, the error is most likely caused due to a misconfiguration of the snmpd.conf from the server.
Please check that configuration file and whether it contains no limitation regarding the OID that are allowed to be queried. Possibly something such as replacing the line starting with view, with the following

view    systemview    included  .

Afterwards, restart your SNMP services and check again if this helps.

Best regards,

Hello Sebastian, thank you for your quick response.

I've just installed the sensor you ask me to, and it's not functionnal (red icon, error message : check firewall, routing...)

just to be sure i've check the line view system on my snmpd.conf

I have 2 lines "view systemview included ." with something else after

Thank you again for your time.

Hi AdSa,

You receive the error message "No response (check: firewalls, routing, snmp settings of device, IPs, SNMP version, community, passwords etc) (SNMP error # -2003)"?
In this case, please check whether the SNMP credentials configured in PRTG matches those configured in the target device and all firewalls between the Probe and target device paths.

In addition, please use our SNMP Tester, run it on the PRTG Host (or host of the Remote Probe), and perform a "Read Device Uptime" against the target device.
Which results do you get in the Tester?

Best Regards,

Hello Moritz, thank you for your response.

It's indeed the error message i had. but i figured it out, in my snmpd.conf, i've reduce the mib already present to . like suggested Sebastian, and i've uncomment a line that allow the computer to monitor other thing that himslef.

I don't know if i'm clear, tell me if you need more explanatation.

I any case my sensor work.

I would like to thank you for your time.

Hello, I follow this conversation because I have a problem with my hard drive sensor. SNMP works because I can go up the physical memory, for example.

I have SNMP error #222

Do you have a solution to the problem? Thank you for your help.

Did you already checked with our SNMP Tester whether the requested OIDs are available?
