Perl Script to copy running config

    I'm writing a Perl script that will set several MIB variables that
    when complete will cause the target host to push it's running
    configuration to a TFTP server.
    When I run the script I get the following error messages:

    STORE(SNMP::MIB=HASH(0x996ce74) enterprises.
    HASH(0x9aadf08)) : write access to the MIB not implemented

    snmpset index 5 . 6

    set Bad variable type (Sub-id not found: (top) -> enterprises)

    Here's a very short version of the script:

    use SNMP::Util;

    $h = "";
    $c = "private";
    $ix = "5";
    $value="6"; #destroy

    $session = new SNMP::Util(-device => $h,
    -community => $c,
    -timeout => 2);
    $session->set(index => $ix,$oid => $value)

    If I change the OID to something like .
    (ifAdminStatus) along with an appropriate index, the script runs fine.
    The problem I think might have something do to with the fact that the
    OID's index does not exist until the set operation is performed.
    However, there are no snmp packets (of any sort) sent when the script
    fails - so I know it's not doing a get operation prior to the set.
    (verified with Wireshark)

    Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your suggestion Alan, however, this does not solve my
    I need to know how to get perl using SNMP::Util to write to the OID I
    mentioned before.
