SNMP Association file directory

Hi,

I have made the mistake and thought the .funcs files are loaded in run-time.
But after your advice, I moved the .funcs files to the directory where the
MIBs files are located, compiled the MIBs and loaded to BIN (compiled MIB)
files to the SNMP agent (giving the full path) and now it's working
perfectly.

Thank you very much for your advice.

Regards,
- Eranga

The data of the funcs-file (an MFA) is compiled into the MIB, so you only
have to make sure that your node has the path to the module implementing
the functions referenced in the funcs-file.

As stated by the documentation, you have to give the full path to the
MIB-file. You can put your MIB-files anywhere you like.

As I wrote in my previous mail, db_dir is just a place for the snmp
application to store internal data.
