OIDs in Windows 2000 Active Directory
Posted on 2003-10-27
I have a question regarding the OID's (Object Identifiers)
of software applications that are used within Windows 2000
(with Active Directory) versus other Windows OS's (i.e.
W2k Professional without Active Directory).
I have a VB application that sends messages to the event
viewer and those messages are then trapped (by evntwin)
and sent via SNMP to our company's SNMP manager. What
I've noticed is that when I configure a VB application in
W2K Professional, the OID's come out:
But when I configure the same app in Windows 2000 Active
(with Active Directory) the OID's come out:
The last 10 numbers of both strings match up, but the
first couple of numbers are not matching at all.
I believe the issue is around how Microsoft issues OID's
for active directory s/w & h/w vs. non-active directory
s/w & h/w.
Can anybody confirm this or has any experience around this
Thanks in advance
