SNMP OID false result - vmware tools status isn't updating.

After system reboot, vmware-tools is running but SNMP OID value doesn't change.. Only executing "service.sh restart" in ESX corrects it.   Vshpere is showing correct status.


Could it be that OID gets updated before the system is fully up???  Anything to with runlevel? Anyone have any idea about it?

snmpwalk -v 2c  -c public 192.168.1.1  SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.2

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.2.7 = STRING: "My-host"

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.2.8 = STRING: "My-host2"

snmpwalk -v 2c  -c public 192.168.1.1 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8.4 = STRING: "running"

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8.9 = STRING: "not running"

snmpwalk -v 2c  -c public 192.168.1.1 SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8.7 = STRING: "running"

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876.2.1.1.8.8 = STRING: "not running"

root@My-host2: /etc/init.d/vmware-tools status

vmware-tools is running.

Bump

I have a lot of VM's. Some of them after rebooting, our monitoring system reports that vmware tools is not running.


Why is it not updating its correct status?
