You need a range, like: (1..32767) or (1..2147483647) for
a 16-bit or a 32-bit index (not using the sign bit in either).

You need to put the range on both the SEQUENCE and the SYNTAX.

Here is an example from the Job Mon MIB if a 16-bit index:

jmGeneralEntry OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX JmGeneralEntry
MAX-ACCESS not-accessible
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"Information about a job set (queue).

An entry SHALL exist in this table for each job set."
INDEX { jmGeneralJobSetIndex }
::= { jmGeneralTable 1 }

JmGeneralEntry ::= SEQUENCE {
jmGeneralJobSetIndex Integer32(1..32767),
jmGeneralNumberOfActiveJobs Integer32(0..2147483647),
jmGeneralOldestActiveJobIndex Integer32(0..2147483647),
jmGeneralNewestActiveJobIndex Integer32(0..2147483647),
jmGeneralJobPersistence Integer32(15..2147483647),
jmGeneralAttributePersistence Integer32(15..2147483647),
jmGeneralJobSetName OCTET STRING(SIZE(0..63))
}

jmGeneralJobSetIndex OBJECT-TYPE
SYNTAX Integer32(1..32767)
MAX-ACCESS not-accessible
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"A unique value for each job set in this MIB. The jmJobTable and
jmAttributeTable tables have this same index as their primary index.
