SNMP Printer sensor with Xerox SC2020



I'm trying to add the SNMP Printer sensor to monitor the toner level for our Xerox printer, but I'm getting this error: "Too Big. It might help to go to the device settings, "SNMP Compatibility Options" and switch "Request Mode" to "Use single get" for this device. (SNMP error # 1)"

I've checked the printer settings for the SNMO Request Mode, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I've tried with both SNMP v1/v2c and SNMP v3 with no luck.

Anyone have any suggestion on where I'm making a mistake? thanks in advance.
