Motorola MIB interface problems


Hi everyone, I have a problem with the Motorola 6521 access points WiNG versions 5.5 and 5.7, symbol 5131 versions 2.0 and 2.2 and Symbol Spectrum24 4131.
What happens is that when doing a snmp walk with OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.1.8 to see the interfaces some show that the radio interface is with status "down" when it is not and with others that interface does not appear.

 

OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.2.1.8

Others do not show the radio interface

Any solutions?

Until this moment, I was sure I was dealing with the most vintage equipment … :smile:

You sure the OID is OK for all the models?

As far as I know, in general, SNMP is not very appreciated for the preWING/WING APS.

You can see in the WING5 best practices the SNMP is suggested for disabling.

Yeah, they're kind of old, hahaha.

But yes, I tried the standard OID to verify the interfaces (1.3.6.1.2.1.2.1.8) of all models and compared it with the CLI for the state of the antenna interfaces, and for example, with

- symbol24AP4131: the interfaces are not shown in the monitoring tool but they are shown in the SNMP walk

- AP5131: the interfaces are not shown in the monitoring tool but they are shown in the SNMP walk

- AP6521 WiNG 5.7 and 5.5: Identifies the radio interface as "Down" when not in both the SNMP walk and the monitoring tool

Everything else on these antennas is displayed correctly such as SSIDs, traffic from the other interfaces, response time, etc.

I have been told that Meraki has had a similar problem in the mx68 firmware where they only had incorrect data in SNMP and that this problem could be the same

How could this be solved?
