Re: MIB for Cisco Switch

1) this depends, Cisco is using the extension .my others are using .mib;

but the extension is not that important, its the fact that the content is written in correct ASN.1 notation (Abstract Syntax Notation 1).

2) different versions of IOS can support different mibs; have a look at the "IOS Mib locator" to see which mibs are supported by which IOS

you cannot load a mib into an IOS version or device; to get support for specific mibs introduced with a certain IOS release, you have to update the device with this IOS version;

3) no, the mib file extension is allways .my for Cisco mibs

here are some URLs for more information:
