Environment
EXOS MIB files that are 2MB and over.
Cause
Some MIB browsers will have a limit to the file size in which can be imported into the MIB browser or NMS.

EXOS MIB files also bundle the MIB definitions into one MIB file as opposed to separate MIB files for each MIB definition. The definition can be seen on where it begins and where it ends by identifying where the begin and end statements are located. The following is an example taken from the 16.2.4.5-patch1-6_MIB.txt file using the Extreme Base MIB definition:

EXTREME-BASE-MIB DEFINITIONS ::= BEGIN

    IMPORTS
    enterprises            FROM RFC1155-SMI
    TEXTUAL-CONVENTION     FROM SNMPv2-TC
    MODULE-IDENTITY       FROM SNMPv2-SMI;
    ...
    ...
    mac-address(1),
    serial-number(2),
    ip-address(3)}

END
Resolution
The definitions can be manually split based on the definitions needed or a MIB splitter tool can be used separate the definitions into their own individual files.
