CISCO MIBs and Insight Manager.

I am getting the following error when tring to import this MIB into Compaq Insight Manager 7. Doesn't seem to matter which one I try it can't find "itself" to compile.

'CISCO-SMI-V1SMI.mib' Failed Registration: 'Cannot open file: CISCO-SMI-V1SMI.mib.'

Not sure what is going on but seems to be a common problem. There are some posts on the Compaq site about this but no one has an easy fix. The only fix they have is to correct the MIB files manually.


Re: CISCO MIBs and Insight Manager.

Compaq InSight Manager has always been problematic when it comes to Loading/Compiling MIBs.

Have you loaded the pre-requisite MIBs first?. Also have a look at the section "MIB Compilers: What Are They? Do You Care? What Issues Might You Encounter and What Are the Workarounds" at: which might help yout. Other than that you may have to fix the MIB files manually to load them. Though I haven't seen any such issues with HPOV and NetView for loading/compiling the MIBs.


Re: CISCO MIBs and Insight Manager.

One common issue that I remember from one of the past InSight Manager MIB loading problems was that it didn't liked the dash '-' in the MIB file name and always complained on it.

Re: CISCO MIBs and Insight Manager.

I have tried modifying the files by renaming them without dashes and also going into the mib files to point them at the new file names. Differnet message now. MIB error "Cannot find parent"
