snmp agent using ipmi

Hi ,

We want to code a program (java) that queries remote snmp servers data that is provided by ipmi interface for that I think intel platforms should proivde

1) snmp oids?

2) a small application that pulls the ipmi that and serves it .

What we want to do is that we want to show server healt status on our own program. Something like Multi-ServerManager-1.0-Build22_Windows. My question is

1) Is there a defined SNMP OID for intel platforms that we can use?

2) Since we use FreeBSD as our platforms operating system we need to interpret ipmi output and serve it. Maybe such a program is written for Linux or Windows but specs are open and we can benefit from that?

Can someone in this list guide me on how to do that since i am a little bit lost on how to do that.

Yes, you are in luck! There are MIBs for almost every server - which one do you have?

Intel has also put effort into supporting IPMI in the open-source community - see http://ipmitool.sourceforge.net/ http://ipmitool.sourceforge.net/

Hi,

The server is Intel platform (SR1625urr or SR2612). I have found out that there is snmp support on it. But when I set the community name to "public"

ipmitool lan set 1 snmp public

I can't query it but i can ping the ipmi interface from another machine on the same lan

ipmitool lan print 1

You may have to enable it first. Have you booted off the Intel Deployment Assistant CD, and gone into the networking configuration? It's been a while since I've done it, but I remember having to do that first before SNMP would answer.

Using IDA I can only set trap sender but not snmp server on ipmi I think. Can someone send the syscfg.efi command for that? There are various commands for snmp but i am not able to figure out which one is to enable SNMP queries on IPMI lan 1 interface (or for RMM3 also)

Regards.

there are a few targets/switches related with snmp at syscfg

/lac = lan alert configuration

/lae = lan alert enable

/lc = lan configutration

/sc = serical configuration

/spe = serial page enable

Which one should i use and can you give me an example for example for rmm3

syscfg /lae 3 <_community_name>

this changes community name which i can see using ipmitool
