I have two FWSM cards in two 6513 switches with failover activated.
Connected to the switches are several servers connected to the different interfaces of the firewall. One of them is one HPOV ( openview ) which needs the ARP table of the FWSM to reach and explore the whole net to begin to monitorize the network.
My problem is I cannot get the ARP table from the firewall, so, I cannot discover more devices, i'm able to SNMP them by editing the SNMP poller in the OVO configuration file, but even the network devices appears, it cannot reach by discover job.
I paste my sh ver here .
FWSM -1# sh ver

I think 3.2 version cannot retrieve the MIB for ARP, and I have finded that version 4.01 does. But I was unable to find any kind of upgrading notes here, and we have the monitoring of server farms proyect sttoped for this problem.
Does anybody have had this problem?
How did you solve this?
You are correct, the "ARP table entries (IP-MIB)" MIB was introduced in 4.0(1) and you have to upgrade to 4.0 code to get pull the ARP Table through SNMP MIB.
And below is the document that has information on upgrading FWSM.
