JSI Tip 4282. How do I install a Host Resource MIB in Windows NT 4.0 Server?

Windows NT 4.0 Server does NOT come with a Host Resource MIB.

If you are running Service Pack 6a, and have a Windows 2000 Server:

1. Copy the %SystemRoot%\System32\hostmib.dll file from the Windows 2000 Server to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder on your Windows NT 4.0 Server.

2. Use Regedt32 to add the following keys and values:

Key:         HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HostMIB\CurrentVersion
Value Name:  Pathname
Type:        REG_SZ
Data:        C:\WinNT\system32\hostmib.dll

NOTE: C:\WinNT is the value of %SystemRoot%.

Key:         HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\ExtensionAgents
Value Name:  3
Type:        REG_SZ
Data:        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HostMIB\CurrentVersion
