IBM hardware monitoring with N-Central

Hi,
I am having problems getting N-Central to monitor ibm xseries hardware, the fans and memory.  I have installed IBM director 6.3 on the servers and can get fan and memory status.  When I try and have N-Central monitor the fans and memory it fails.  There is a mismatch on the snmp OID that N-Central is looking for.  I have had no success with N-Central tech support, or IBM, in finding what OIDs I need.
Any thoughts?  I find it hard to believe that I am the only one having problems with this.
Thanks - Wayne

This is not specific to your hardware. I'm responding from perspective of somebody who has written similar software and firmware.   The most common thing I see in this situation is nothing more than using the wrong MIB.  Check release notes for the MIB (or the file itself) and see what it requires by way of firmware and software revisions.

Do the same for the software/firmware by looking at release notes and make sure you meet the requirements for that.  Bottom line, make everything current.
