Re: Monitor not finding MIB variable Disk Usage
It is not the monitor that gives the error, it is the agent on the box. Perhaps
not running the same version of SIA (the agent, sysinfod) on both boxes.

I highlight a node in an IP segment and right click on the node.
In the popup menu there is a "Monitor" menu item.
When I left click on "Monitor" another menu pops up an there is a menu item
for system activity.
When I rigth click on "System activity" there is a menu item for Disk Usage.
When I right click on Disk Usage it pops up with a Disk Space dialog box.
All we need to do is enter the address of the node that we need to monitor
the disk usage for.
On the netview server I can moitor the disk usage.
That way I get the information about the disk/ file system usage.
But on one of the nodes this dialog box gives an error message saying
"servername.abc.abc: The variable does not exist or is read only"
When I use the MIB browser to get the variable below
It gives the correct information about the file system and the disk usage.
I could not determine why the Monitor was unable to read the variable.
The netview server is running TME 10 NetView 5.1 on AIX 4.3.2.
The also is also an AIX 4.1.4 server running sysinfod.
When I display the object information for both the Netview server and the
netview client the only difference is that
NetView server's isManager = TRUE and for the node it is FALSE.
Should I be running any other process on the node.
I am able to moitor the disk usage on the netview server.
