The V2 loader makes a temp copy of the text  version of the MIB  database
/usr/OV/conf/snmp2mib and appends the new mibfile to it, and then starts its
compile of the entire new text file,  to create snmp2mib.bin. The V1 loader
works the same way. It sounds like whatever is wrong here is causing the line
numbers to get wonky as well, so I don't know what else to tell you to do except
to suggest that you call Support and get some help.   There doesn't appear to be
an easy answer from what you have told me.

It's Netview 6.0 on AIX 4.3.2.  I'm trying to load with the V1/V2 MIB loader.
I have quit all the way out of the GUI...even all the way out of the Netview
GUI itself.  It didn't help.  I've just unloaded a MIB that was loaded and
found that it would not load again.  The error I receive is mentioned below in
my original email.  On this last attempt the line number was 42881.  So what
file does it put these loaded MIBs into?

Are you using (1)  UNIX or  NT and what Level of NetView  and (2) the V1 or V2
MIB loader?

When I say " quit" I mean leave the MIB loader GUI all together and then
restart
it.  The  try your failing MIB again.  If that still gives you wierd errors,
try
one that we supply to see how that does.  You can always unload it again.

And yes, what I was saying was that you shoudlexamin the MIB fuile you are
trying to load for syntactical problems, but it will be hard to do that with
weird line numbers.   Those are what we are trying to overcome.  But even with
those there is usually some descriptive message as well.  What does that say?

Hi.  I did quit and tried another MIB.  This MIB is called
CISCO-MEMORY-POOL-MIB.my.  The error mentions line number -4297.  There are
two problems with this:  the line number is negative, and there are only 227
lines in the MIB file.

Your message says to examine the MIB and figure it out.  If you really meant
to look at the MIB file I am loading, then I don't understand at all.  Could
you clarify for me?

Thanks!

Craig

Cancel out and start over.  There is a problem with the MIB you are trying to
load.  Just trying it again will cause another temp copy of it to be added to
the one which you already have and throw off the line numbers.   So the rule
of
thumb is -  whnne you get an error, quit.  Then examine the MIB and see if you
can figure it out.

Hi.  In Netview 6.0, I was trying to load some MIB's just now and received:

"Error detected while loading MIB File: <MIB file>.  This MIB cannot be loaded
until the following problem is corrected:

Bad operator: On or around line -4305
Mib table is bad.
Bad operator: On or around line 44850
Mib table is bad.

Every attempt to load a MIB results in this message with two new lines
referencing different line numbers that are larger than the previous.

So what file has the problem?
