SnmpSetTranslateMode function (winsnmp.h)

[SNMP is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Windows Remote Management, which is the Microsoft implementation of WS-Man.]

The WinSNMP SnmpSetTranslateMode function enables a WinSNMP application to change the entity and context translation mode. The entity and context translation mode affects the interpretation and return of WinSNMP input and output string parameters.

Syntax

SNMPAPI_STATUS SNMPAPI_CALL SnmpSetTranslateMode(
  [in] smiUINT32 nTranslateMode
);

Parameters

[in] nTranslateMode

Specifies a value for the new entity and context translation mode. This parameter must be one of the following values.

Value Meaning
SNMPAPI_TRANSLATED
The Microsoft WinSNMP implementation uses its database to translate user-friendly names for SNMP entities and managed objects. The implementation translates them into their SNMPv1 or SNMPv2C components.
SNMPAPI_UNTRANSLATED_V1
The implementation interprets SNMP entity parameters as SNMP transport addresses, and context parameters as SNMP community strings. For SNMPv2 destination entities, the implementation creates outgoing SNMP messages that contain a value of zero in the version field.
SNMPAPI_UNTRANSLATED_V2
The implementation interprets SNMP entity parameters as SNMP transport addresses, and context parameters as SNMP community strings. For SNMPv2 destination entities, the implementation creates outgoing SNMP messages that contain a value of 1 in the version field.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is SNMPAPI_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is SNMPAPI_FAILURE. To get extended error information, call SnmpGetLastError specifying a NULL value in its session parameter. The SnmpGetLastError function can return one of the following errors.

Return code Description
SNMPAPI_NOT_INITIALIZED
The SnmpStartup function did not complete successfully.
SNMPAPI_ALLOC_ERROR
An error occurred during memory allocation.
SNMPAPI_MODE_INVALID
The implementation does not support the requested translation mode.
SNMPAPI_OTHER_ERROR
An unknown or undefined error occurred.

Remarks

The new entity and context translation mode affects subsequent calls to the SnmpStrToEntity, SnmpStrToContext, SnmpContextToStr, and SnmpEntityToStr functions. The WinSNMP application can change the entity and context translation mode again by making another call to SnmpSetTranslateMode with a different nTranslateMode value.

For additional information, see Setting the Entity and Context Translation Mode.
