Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Managing MIB files

OpenManage Essentials provides support for formatting hardware alerts (SNMP traps) for most enterprise devices. If you have non-Dell devices, you can use the Alerts portal to define new alerts for OpenManage Essentials. Defining alerts allows OpenManage Essentials to monitor a wider range of hardware and set up email and forwarding rules for these devices.

The Alerts portal allows you to extract trap definitions from SMIv1 or SMIv2 management information base (MIB) files. The extracted traps can be viewed and edited before importing them to OpenManage Essentials. This utility also allows you to manually define and manage traps. Using the imported and manually-managed trap definitions, OpenManage Essentials properly classifies the incoming trap from a specific device.

  • NOTE: Importing traps portal is optional and only needed for formatting alerts from non-Dell devices.
