[mrtg] NT not returning SysUpTime

I am trying to use MRTG (running on a Linux 6.0 box) to trend the CPU and
Memory stats. for one of our NT servers, but I am having problems. The NT
server is version 4.0, SP5. The NT server will not return a value for
sysUpTime. The OID that I am querying for sysUpTime is .
When performing an SNMPGET using the Linux box for . on the
NT server, the system returns the error :

Error in Packet
Reason : (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
This name doesn't exist : system.sysUpTime.0

I know that SNMP is working on the NT server, as I can query values
successfully for the performance monitor counters by doing an SNMPGET using
the Linux box that is running MRTG. The MIBs that I have compiled on the NT
server using MIBCC.EXE are as follows : SMI.MIB, MIB-II.MIB, PERFMIB.MIB,
INETSRV.MIB, FTP.MIB, HTTP.MIB and RFC1213.MIB. Is there something that I am
missing in the setup of SNMP on the NT server? Are there any other MIBs that
I require on the NT server?

Thanks in advance for any help,
