I have been developing an agent that retrieves values from a Cisco LAN Controller, however, I am unable to get any data back from the Cisco Controller. The agent builder seems to be using SNMPv1 to retrieve data, even when I specifically tell it to use SNMPv2c.
When I use a third party tool to retrieve the data (SNMPv2c) it returns the required data.
This behaviour has been verified with wireshark sniffing the traffic.
Why is the agent builder continually using SNMPv1 and not SNMPv2.

Re: IBM Tivoli Agent Builder2013-02-01T16:27:50Z in response to richhockThis was when using the "Test" function inside the Agent builder.
I have got around the problem by using another tool to walk the MIBs and search for the values that I required.
Apparently it is a limitation with the product during building the agent that it can only use SNMP v1.
This is of course a problem if your network devices are using SNMPv2c or SNMPv3.

Re: IBM Tivoli Agent Builder2013-02-01T17:39:30Z in response to hansolobmxriderI did find a problem with the Test function not correctly selecting the proper SNMP version. It should work correctly when deployed in an agent. It will be fixed in the next release. Thanks for pointing it out.

Re: IBM Tivoli Agent Builder2013-03-15T15:12:17Z in response to CyLLleCTBoThe problem is fixed in IBM Tivoli Monitoring V6.3.0 Agent Builder, English, Multiplatform (CIGM4EN) which is now available on Passport Advantage.
Installing the new agent builder does not result in any loss of work, projects or agents. The agents generated with the latest Agent Builder are also backward compatible with earlier infrastructure releases, so there is no need to upgrade your infrastructure.
