Announcing: OpenManage Essentials MIB Import Utility Now Available
Of course you know that OpenManage Essentials is the best tool for monitoring all of your Dell enterprise hardware. All of the SNMP traps for PowerEdge, PowerVault, PowerConnect, Dell Printers, etc., are all defined in OME. So when a trap comes in, it is nicely formatted and you can email it or set up an alert ‘action’.
One of the feature requests often raised by customers and folks on the OME forum is for the ability to monitor hardware alerts from non-Dell devices. We never had this feature in IT Assistant, so it’s been something we’ve been wanting to get around to for a long time. Well today we are happy to post the OpenManage Essentials MIB Import Utility on DellTechCenter/OME. This is a small standalone tool you install on your OME server. After a quick install, you can point to your MIB, say a third-party switch or server, and import the alert definitions to OME. Once you have done this, point your device SNMP traps to the OME server and they will start to show up in Alert console.
Please review the information on the MIB Import Utility landing page and start importing!
