Re: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Good Day Abhijit,

We're attempting to push a fresh install of the Linux OMSA agent to a server but the client is responding with the following error: "Results: omexec must be installed on the remote node for the task. Ensure remote node requirements are met before executing the task."

As far as I've been told, the pre-reqs listed under "Install OMSA Dependencies" have been completed; we've also turned off the local firewall to rule that out. What else are we missing?

Kind regards,

Scott

Re: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Hi Scott,

omexec is part of Pre-install package and it needs the below RPMS. Can you grep each rpm and verify these RPMS and the dependent RPMS are installed correctly. Note that these are 32-bit RPMS.

RHEL

compat-libstdc++-33.i686

libxml2.i686

pam.i686

glibc.i686

zlib.i686

libgcc.i686

Regards

Abhijit

Re: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Good morning Abhijit,

My Nix admin sent back the following as installed:

compat-libstdc++-33.i686

libxml2.i686

pam.i686

glibc.i686

zlib.i686

libgcc.i686

All versions installed are x86_64 and the install of compat-libstdc++-33.i686 also installed the glibc and libgcc i686 versions.

I'm still getting the same omexec error. Are these the correct versions?

Much obliged (and Happy Friday),

Scott

Re: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Hi followed this guide, I discovered and inventoried a C6145 and R815 servers (RHEL 6). However, I found that in OME, all processor and memory info are missing (they present in server's OMSA though).

Am I missing something?

Cheers,

Derrick

RE: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Be sure your firewall is off or allows snmp access.  In our testing, we could run snmpwalk against localhost, but remote snmp queries were failing.  We spent several hours looking at our monitor software configurations and our snmpd.conf file for errors before realizing it was a firewall issue.

Re: How to configure OMSA/SNMP on Linux

Could you make an manuel for OpenManage without essentials? am having a hard tim getting it to work...

Server administrator SNMP component is not installed.
