Determine which oid2type_*.conf file contains the duplicate entry. Use sm_edit to edit the oid2type file that contains the duplicate entry and comment out the entry.

For example, the printer OID in this error is also defined in BASEDIR/smarts/conf/discovery/oid2type_Misc.conf.

  1. Edit the file by using sm_edit.

                   BASEDIR/smarts/bin/sm_edit conf/discovery/oid2type_Misc.conf
  2. Comment out the entry for the duplicate OID, by preceding the lines with a pound sign (#):

     #. {
     #  TYPE = Host
     #  VENDOR = HP
     #  Interface-Fault   = MIB2
     #  Interface-Performance  = MIB2
  3. Save and close the file. The edited copy is saved in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/discovery/ directory.

  4. Restart the Manager with the --dynamic option.
