Problem converting MIB file to Python

DavidHourani

Hello,

I am trying to convert a MIB file to python in order to use it in "SNMP Modular Input" and I am having the following error:

#smidump -f python CISCO-LWAPP-AP-MIB.my

CISCO-LWAPP-AP-MIB.my: unable to determine SMI version
smidump: cannot locate module `CISCO-LWAPP-AP-MIB.my'

Could someone please help me get this fixed ?

Thank you

Best regards,
David

This question is related to the SNMP Modular Input for loading in custom MIBs.

Check to make sure your SMI paths are set up correctly in /etc/smi.conf

Ummm... i looked in /etc and i don't have an smi.conf

I only have the following:

smicache smidiff smidump smilint smiquery smistrip smixlate

Am I missing something ?

Trying qualifying your MIB file path by putting a preceeding "./".

smidump -f python ./CISCO-LWAPP-AP-MIB.my
