  • The netapp.mib file can be retrieved by extracting the .z / .zip / .tar.gz file using file compression software like 7zip etc.
  • You will need to replace the existing default netapp.mib file that is in the /mroot/etc/mib directory on each node in the cluster with the one obtained from the respective package downloaded for the ONTAP version running on the cluster.

Additional Information

  • NetApp provides MIB files only for ONTAP 9 versions. 
  • For 7-mode, either retrieve MIB from the ONTAP system root volume or acquired via the NetApp Communities.
