[rrd-users] [OT] - Get versus Getnext

Afternoon, all...

Apologies for the slightly off-topic post...

Using MRTG I would like to query the MSSQL mssqlSrvInfoUserConnections OID

Doing a walk / getnext on the above OID using (insert your favourite MIB
browser here) I get a reponse along with a system specific OID:

[user at host]$ snmpgetnext -v2c <hostname> <community>
enterprises.311. = Gauge32: 43

Using the OID in the reponse, I assume that I should be able to perform a
simple snmp get on it to get the data I require.


[user at host]$ snmpget -v2c <hostname> <community>
Error in packet
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
Failed object: enterprises.311.

Two questions: 

1. Does anyone have any idea as to why this is the case?

2. Can I make MRTG do a getnext instead of a get? (I think I know that this
is a no).

I have tried both SNMPv1 and v2c.
I have tried appending .0 .1 .2 etc to the end of the OID.

Please help!!

Many thanks in advance for any insight anyone may give me.

Kind Regards,
