Steps to use 

  1. Log in to the polling engine polling the device.
  2. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion and run SNMPWalk.exe
  3. Enter IP address of Node, Community String, SNMP Port, SNMP version and if using SNMPv3, enter the SNMPv3 authentication details. The details used should be the same as used in Orion to monitor the device.
  4. Click Scan and then save the resulting text file.
  5. Review the OIDs returned from the device and the values for the OIDs.
  6. Compare the OIDs supported by the device against those Orion polls and compare the values returned to those reported in the Web console.
