I have a mix of 2K and 2K3 servers; it's happening more frequently on the 2K3 
boxes. My Dell and HP servers each have their respective management utilities 
installed, which do add MIBs as far as I know.

I already got this sort of behavior on Windows 2000. Are they on Windows 2000 ?

Any third party software that add MIB to the snmp like Brightstor, NSS... ?

Objet : [gptalk] SNMP via GPO strange behavior


Hi All,


I have two unrelated domains, and recently implemented a GPO to configure SNMP 
on my servers. The GPO settings are the same in each domain.


In one, everything works fine. In the second, the SNMP settings apply properly, 
but sometimes the SNMP service will fail to respond to queries. Restarting it 
fixes the problem temporarily, but often during group policy refresh, it recurs.


Manually applying the same SNMP settings to any of the servers works as 

Any thoughts?
