mibs and cisco 2960 - cisco's ftp .my files not working

Unanswered Question
Jul 9th, 2008

I am using Praessler PRTG MIB importer to get the OIDs for a Cisco 2960. However, when I use Praessler's PRTG Traffic Grapher and any of the OIDs, I get a "no such name" response.

I obtained the .my files from Cisco's ftp site: /pub/mibs/v1. I am curious as to why the mib files are not on: http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/netmgmt/cmtk/mibs.shtml

I have a CCO account, but when I try to logon to this page I get an error message. Where do I find the mib files for the cisco 2960.

I have this problem too.

No such name has nothing to do with not having MIBs loaded in PRTG. This error comes from the device indicating you are polling an OID which does not exist (i.e. no device support). The list of MIBs supported by your 2960's IOS image can be found at http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/MIBS/MainServlet . Once you fill in the family, version, and feature set, you will see the list with download links next to each. Typically, you should go with the SMIv2 version where available.
