Troubleshooting

What problem are you having?

a. My SNMP agent is not functioning.

b. My SNMP management system keeps timing out while querying the WINS server.


a.My SNMP agent is not functioning
-------------------------------------------------------
Cause: An unknown network or SNMP problem.

Solution: SNMP error handling is integrated with Event Viewer. Use Event Viewer if you suspect there is a problem with the SNMP service. You can configure a View filter to display only SNMP messages.


b.My SNMP management system keeps timing out while querying the WINS server
-----------------------------------------------------
Cause: The SNMP time-out period is too short or the WINS server is off-line or unreachable.

Solution: Increase the SNMP time-out period on the SNMP management system. If that does not work contact your system administrator to check the WINS server.
