snmp giving strange output

I'm trying to configure snmp to allow monitoring on 'solarwinds' software. This is just a simple server health monitor so I didn't think the setup would be complicated (I still don't think it will be, I must be missing something basic).


Anyway I have confirmed the daemon is running and created a snmpd.conf file containing only the system location, system contact and a rocommunity string of public.


Then when I run a 'snmpwalk -c public localhost' command in terminal it only returns the system contact then says - 'No more variables left in this view (it is past the end of the MIB tree)'


I have 4 servers, 2 of which return this and won't work with the monitoring software and 2 of which work exactly as expected. As far as I can tell they have the same snmpd.conf settings, I've triple checked the community names and all have the service confirmed running.


If anyone has any ideas about this then I'd be grateful for the advise, I'm about to pull my hair out.

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.6)
