jbumsted has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi -

I am attempting to script the setting of an OID through Net::SNMP. I have determined that the session is getting created successfully, I can do read_requests successfully, etc. The error I see when checking $SESSION->error() is: "The ASN.1 type "INTEGER" is unknown. " Here is my code:

use Net::SNMP; my $SESSION = Net::SNMP->session (-hostname => $ip, -community =>priva +te); $SESSION->set_request(-varbindlist=>["", INT +EGER, 1]); print $SESSION->error();

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! NOTE: Edited for spelling. , and edited to "fix my mess".

    Please put <code>...</code> tags around your code (see Writeup Formatting Tips) - this is very hard to read. (code tags added as requested)

    Can you show your use Net::SNMP line. You may have blocked INTEGER from being exported.

    Also, private in -community =>private should be quoted.

      Thanks for the response Ken. I updated the original post to make it more readable. My use line is below.

      use Net::SNMP;

        That line looks fine. INTEGER should be exported by default. Please do the following:


        use strict; use warnings;

        before that line.

        Quote the bareword private.

        Run it again and post any error output.
