    Data type error for SNMP item

    Hi Folks,

    I'm new to Zabbix and I'm having a hard time to figure out how to proper create Itens for the some of our routers MIB itens.

    Performing a snmpwalk I got 4 interfaces and the respective OIDs to count errors on it.

    IF-MIB::ifDescr.1 = STRING: LAN
    IF-MIB::ifDescr.2 = STRING: WAN1
    IF-MIB::ifDescr.3 = STRING: WAN2
    IF-MIB::ifDescr.4 = STRING: WAN3
    ...
    IF-MIB::ifOutErrors.1 = Counter32: 0
    IF-MIB::ifOutErrors.2 = Counter32: 0
    IF-MIB::ifOutErrors.3 = Counter32: 0
    IF-MIB::ifOutErrors.4 = Counter32: 0

    I then create items using a dynamic index:



    But no matter how I set the Type of Information I always end up with an disabled item and error saying:OID [IF-MIB::IfOutErrors.1] value has unknown type [0x81].

    .

    What am I doing wrong?

    Is there a good documentation describing the Type of information and how should I properly choose them?

    Thanks in advance,

    Eric

    Figured out the problem. For those out there facing snmp errors of invalid value, pay attention to the uppercase and lower case of OID name.

    I was setting IF-MIB::IfInError (with a capital "I") when the proper OID name is IF-MIB::ifInError (with lower "i").

    After fixing the name everything went fine!!

    Cheers,

    Eric
