What is the specific OID for a Cisco 3660 rtr?

I see how to get the value when I snmpget system.sysOjbectID.0 but don't know what that translates to. Can someone help me out?

[email protected] > snmpget host1.domain.org public system.sysObjectID.0

system.sysObjectID.0 = OID: enterprises.9.1.205

I would think it is . but when I try to snmpget that specific OID, nothing comes back so I'm doing something wrong.

OK. When I snmpget host1.domain.com public system.sysOjbectID.0 - it returns enterprises.9.1.205 - again this is a 3660 rtr.

I then put this into the oject translator and it returns -

My question is: why can I NOT do an snmpget on that specific OID of -

When I do it, I get:

[email protected] > snmpget host1.domain.com public

Error in packet

Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.

Failed object: system.sysUpTime.

.205 is the value returned, it is not an object that can be queried specifically.

It would be like querying ifInOctets and then doing an snmpget for ifInOctets.1.1008973 (1008973 being the returned value)

.205 is not an index, it is a value returned based upon the CISCO-PRODUCTS-MIB
