6.8 Generating a MIB File

SNMP management applications typically require a MIB defining managed data. For each MIF file that you want to make accessible to an SNMP manager, you must generate an SNMP MIB that corresponds to the MIF file. The MIB must then be loaded at the management application that uses the definitions in the MIB to communicate with the DMI component. The management application may also make the MIB information available to browsers and other MIB-based applications.

To generate an SNMP MIB from a MIF file, use the miftomib utility at the command prompt. After you create the MIB file, you may transfer it to the SNMP management application.
