Dell EMC OpenManage Essentials Version 2.5 User's Guide

Troubleshooting

Question: What do I need to do if all SNMP traps from an ESXi 5 host show up in OpenManage Essentials as unknown?

Answer: You must change the hardware event source in the SNMP config on the ESXi 5 host from CIM to IPMI. Run the following commands:

vicfg-snmp.pl --username root --password <yourpassword> --server <yourserver> --hwsrc sensors

The output of the --show command would display the following:

Current SNMP agent settings:

Enabled : 1

UDP port : 161

Communities : public

Notification targets :

<myOMEservername>@162/public

Options :

EnvEventSource=sensors
