IOS or CatOS?

If you are running CatOS on the supervisor, and IOS on an MSFC (aka "hybrid mode") then you will need to set up snmp on the CatOS portion as well and run cfgmaker against both processors.

If you are running native mode (IOS on both the supervisor and the msfc) then you shouldn't run into this problem.
