Hi,

yes, i'm extending the agent, sorry for not giving that information.

anyway... thanks for the information, i'll look for another way.

i'll put you into situation to see if i can actually do what i'm planning.

Example: i want to create folders from snmp.

let's say i run something like this:

***********************

snmpset -v 2c -c mykey localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.2021.255.8.1.9 s "create...folder1"

*****************************

and i want snmp to create the folder1 and return if it has been created
or not.
So... knowing that snmpset can't return a personalised "OK"
message........ could i perform a snmpset to store that
"create...folder1" value somewhere in the snmp tree and then run a
snmpget which performs de "mkdir" and returns "OK" or "NOK"?

could i do that with extended snmp and perl?
