Hold on there, guy. All lot of what your finding is legacy.. I don't know
if I agree with turning everything on in your .inc file- you might want to
think about that...

I'm using SMICng (v2.2.07), and that is how I found these.
You have to enable all the checking (except B, which I think is
Now, I've found more bugs.
Integer objects used as INDEX (auxiliary) objects can't be negative
clause 7.7 bottom of page 27).
Therefore, you need to change the SYNTAX for ospfAddressLessIf,
ospfIfMetricAddressLessIf, ospfNbrAddressLessIndex, and
ospfLocalLsdbAddressLessIf from Integer32 to Unsigned32.
Note that ospfNbrAddressLessIndex actually uses the TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
InterfaceIndex, which conflicts with the TC in the IF-MIB with the same
and therefore should not be used (besides, you really want the full 32
to accomidate IP addresses).
Therefore I recommend using Unsigned32 and removing the InterfaceIndex TC
For consistancy (with updating to SMIv2), I suggest importing mib-2 from
SNMPv2-MIB rather than RFC1213-MIB.
(This is not a bug, but... RFC1213 should be retired, IMHO.)
