I was wondering if someone could let me know how to enable SNMP on an ESX version 3 server?
We are looking at using a program from Solarwinds (http://www.solarwinds.com) to monitor our ESX servers and we need to have SNMP enabled for the program to gather data.
root on console:
you should get snmpd
chkconfig --level 2345 snmpd on
service start snmpd
make sure you've edited your snmpd.conf file in /etc/ before - man snmpd.conf and read the actual file for examples.
esxcfg-firewall -o 161,tcp,in,SNMPD
Traps are different, but this answers your Q.
