Basic SNMP Questions

Basic SNMP Questions

(OP)
- Are snmp OID queries case sensitive?

- Is there a standard set of MIBS that all SNMP enabled devices should have?

- Is there a standard OID to query to get a device Manufacturer, or would that be Host specific?

- Is there a standard OID to query to get a device Model, or would that be Host specific?

- Is there a standard OID to query to get a device Serial Number, or would that be Host specific?


- I have tried to query snmpget –v 2c device.org HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrDeviceDescr. My response is, HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrDeviceDescr = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID.

- Does this mean the MIB is not installed on device.org?
- Does this mean I have a syntax error?

- I have tried to query snmpget –v 2c device.org HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::ProductID. My response is, HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::ProductID:

- Does this mean the MIB is installed on device.org but there is no value stored in that location?

Thanks

RE: Basic SNMP Questions

(OP)
Another basic question,

- Is there a way to query what MIBS are installed on a device?

Thanks.
