I have interesting problem with disk monitoring on Solaris 10. In /etc/sma/snmp/snmpd.conf I have configured 5 disks but MRTG sees only 4 of them. I receive two error messages:

SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
  error status: noSuchName
  index 2 (OID:
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "servername" [xx.xx.xx.xx].161)
                  community: "community"
                 request ID: 805328218

SNMPGET Problem for dskPercent.5 dskPercent.5 on community at servername::::::v4only
 at /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/mrtg line 1921
ERROR: Target[servername.disk5name][_IN_] ' $target->[1904]{$mode} ' did not eval into defined data
ERROR: Target[servername.disk5name][_OUT_] ' $target->[1904]{$mode} ' did not eval into defined data

After adding the first disk twice, all is OK:
disk / 5%
disk / 5%
disk /var 5%
disk /crashfs 5%
disk /export/home 5%
disk /disk5name 5%

It seems that MRTG does not recognize the first disk in snmpd.conf. Does anybody experienced the same problem? I think the first error message applies to system uptime, but it also disappears after adding the first disk twice.
