Let's say I have an internal registry as recommended by the RFC. So one of
my NICs is
enterprise.ibm.ibmprinters.network.ethernet.ibm (for example)
or a printer device is
Is it mandated that I use this "articulated" representation of the syntax?
Of can I represent the OID as 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206? This is the OID, for
example, for my network card example above. This is more compact (embedded
printers... remember?)... but not at all useful unless I make my registry
public. I don't see a lot of companies making these public so maybe I've
answered my own question.
What about the fact that some components (network cards, for example) may
already have unique plug-n-play IDs. Use them?
I'd like to know the "official" intent, however. Thanks. Maybe it's already
spelled out somewhere that I didn't find.
