SNMP Bridge-MIB Help

We have several HP V1910-24G-PoE (365W) switches (JE007A). We are attempting to use the Solar Winds Port Mapper to query the swtich to determine which devices are connected to which ports etc. When we query the switch we get the following error message "10.10.180.1 does not support the Bridge-MIB". Based on some reading there doesn't seem to be anything out there for this specific switch although it seems to be a fairly common issue in general. I attempted to add some Bridge-MIB OID's to the SMMP settings on the switch but when I run the tool I get the same error. I read somewhere that potentially I need to download a MIB file and import it into the Port Mappper. Any help would be appreciated.

Versions 1 and 2 are enabled. We don't run 3 anywhere. And the software is the same.

Are you getting this error on the version 2 devices or just the version 1. I know that Solars documentation say there is a GetBulk feature that only runs on version 2 devices and it is turned on by default.

What i was saying is, both versions are enabled on all our switches but only our HP v1910 switches are not responding to this request. As per this spec sheet, the Bridge MIB is supported on this device series. I am going to reach out to HP support on this one.

Just to clarify: you're saying
to determine which devices are connected to which ports etc.
Does this mean you want to get the LLDP discovery database over snmp?

The V1910 is a Comware 5 based switch, should be able to give you anything you need. I'll try to do a full snmpwalk on a lab one at home, see what it returns.

Hello Tim, no not LLDP data. Typically this software would provide you with a listing of interface information for each individual port of the switch you are polling. Ex. Interface name, port number, Link Speed, Device MAC, Device IP, DNS Name.

Okay, that's the standard Bridge/IF MIB.
I'm attaching an older snmpwalk output from (a still 3Com branded) switch as an example, I'd say it has everything you need.

This was resolved by updating to the latest switch port mapper. I guess the MIB's in the old version did not support this series of HP switches.
