[mrtg] snmpget failing after switching from polling 32 bit to 64 bit interface counters

I can't help but notice that the below says you're using SNMP v1, which
doesn't support 64-bit counters. The question is why is MRTG trying to
use SNMPv1 with that config, which isn't immediately clear to me, since
you have :::::2 in the right place (I did exactly what you did a few
years back and have had no issues with it). I would use cfgmaker to poll
those hosts and compare the configs they make with what you made
manually to find the difference.
cfgmaker my_community_string at a.b.c.d:::::2 for instance...
