Are you running SUN's own SEA agent or the UCD agent?  Check the config of the
agent.  It looks to me like the agent maybe permits access to the system part
of MIB2 but not other parts.  This tends to be typical with the UCD agent.  You
will need to open access to all of MIB2 to get NetView to really think he
supports SNMP.
