SNMP HPE ProLiant System Health sensor gives error No such name (SNMP error #2)



When adding the SNMP HPE ProLiant System Health sensor i get the No such name (SNMP error #2) warning.

There are multiple other SNMP checks on this system already so I doubt that SNMP is the issue, I tried reading uptime and interfaces with the SNMP tester which both work. I've set the SNMP version to 1 for the time being but this didn't change anything either.

I have tried multiple OID's that I found in various other threads:  works works gives error: SNMP error # -2007

Any other steps I can take to make this checks work?

Since other OID's are working, SNMP is working in general. If only specific OIDs are not working, it's likely that your device simply does not support the OID. Are all requirements for this sensor fulfilled?
