Problems with SNMP and Debian / Ubuntu

In Debian and Ubuntu versions (circa April 2011) the SNMP agent comes with a non-enabled MIB tree, that means, SNMP agents will not translate or understand any “word” of the MIB address,they will only understand numeric OID, that is a problem for most SNMP software, so you will need to re-configure it. This can be done in two steps:

  • Install package mibs-downloader
# apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader
  • Edit /etc/snmp/snmp.conf and remove all the uncommented lines (or comment them).
