Hello there,

MIB files are usually based on other MIB files, since the files would get quite big if all information is included in one file. PRTG and the MIB Importer has already several MIBs implemented and therefore, this message appears quite rarely. In this case it seems that the "FDDI-SMT73-MIB" is missing and needs to be implemented first. After this one is implemented, you can try to add the MIB again.

Kind regards,
