Sue,

You are trying to run mib2trap on this MIB by concatenating all the IMPORTS into a single file, right?

I would do the following:

The Cisco v2 MIBs include a file SNMPv2-SMI.my

This has the OID definitions from RFC2578, which the MIB loader will need

Just before the END statement in this MIB file, add a line saying

Unsigned32 ::= Gauge32

(This was one of James Shanks's options)

Concatenate in order

1. SNMPv2-SMI.my with the addition above
2. CISCO-SMI.my
3. CISCO-ENTITY-FRU-CONTROL-MIB.my

into a single file.

Then run mib2trap and it should work.

The problem you are running into may be caused by your mixing a Cisco v1SMI file with v2SMI files.

Hi James,

I included cisco-tc-v1smi.mib which solved the Unsigned32 problem (SNMPv2-SMI was already included but it doesn't appear to be the RFC 2578 version). I'm now getting Textual convention doesn't map to real type.(SEQUENCE): The mib I'm trying to load is CISCO-ENTITY-FRU-CONTROL.my. I've concatenated all the mibs on the import list. Do you have any ideas.

Many thanks in advance.
Sue

Well, there is a definition for Unsigned32 in the standard SNMPv2-SMI mib,
RFC 2578, and if you concatenate the mib you are working with to that, the
resulting file should work fine.   Or you could use the cisco-tc-v1smi.mib
we ship in /usr/OV/snmp_mibs in the same way.  Or you could just edit the
problem MIB and add this
     Unsigned32 ::= Gauge32
near the beginning.

Hi ,

I'm running Netview 7.1.3 Fixpack 3 on Unix and have trouble running
mib2trap on some mibs. The error message is

Textual convention doesn't map to real type.(Unsigned32):

According to the imports list it is included in SNMPv2-SMI mib but it
doesn't appear to be there. Perhaps my version of compiler doesn't support
this. Does anyone know how I can resolve this problem without upgrading
compilers.

Thanks in advance,
Sue
