Trying to use Netsight to do some SNMP work...

Trying to use Netsight to do some SNMP work...

Trying to use Netsight to do some SNMP work...

Hey folks...
My boss is convinced that we can use Netsight to push out configuration changes to 3rd party vendor equipment...and that is true, but the problem is trying to get all of the MIBs (any MIBs above and below that would need to be changed) to do everything.  Since I am NOT by any means a Netsight guru, I was wondering if anyone here knows how to do this... I want to disable SNMP on about 200 ancient print servers that they insist on keeping in service and the reason that we're disabling SNMP is because they're so old we can't change the public/private strings on them so they're a security threat.  Being in an environment where they scan routinely for vulnerabilities, we have to disable SNMP otherwise we keep getting beat up over this.  Anyway, my boss wants me to figure out how to push this "disable SNMP" setting through Netsight to these 200+ Milan 3200 print servers.  Now, before anyone says "replace the print servers" I would, if I could.  Before anyone says, go around and do it by hand, apparently they tried that and something about the interface isn't user friendly so they want to do it this way... hence my question.  How do we do this with Netsight?

According to Milan, the MIB OID that this model of print server uses is I found the MIB here: http://www.euroline.no/ftp/pub/Digi/Milan/pub/misc/snmpmib/private.mib

Now, I have that much info, my question is, what is the next step?

Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!
