SNMP MIB's for IBM Servers

I've been looking for IBM Server MIB's. Upon installing IBM Server Director Agent several MIB's were installed as well. But none of them give me much details on the OID's.

For example: I have a number of OID for
iBMPSGUMSComponentHealthDescription
Here  is one sample
Name/OID: iBMPSGUMSComponentHealthDescription.8.49.102.50.48.49.102.52.53; Value (OctetString): Component reports OK

I need more details as to what component the OID represents in the server. I download IBM server MIB's here and the MIB from this site are the same are the installed once on the server
http://www.oidview.com/mibs/2/md-2-1.html 

Any ideas how I could go about and fining more information? I want to monitor an IBM server hardware components and need to know what OID's I need to monitor.

Doesn't anyone use google or blackle anymore?

Good luck,

Do I use google?? Sure I do...I'm not from the stone ages...

So here is what I have found so far. Some information I found on the link SteveJ provided and other information trough google searches.

umssnmp.dll is a file part of the IBM Director Agent but it does not register. I searched for the file on the hard drive and found it.

This is what I found in the notes

"This dll, (umssnmp.dll) hereafter called the Director Agent SNMP subagent, complies with the Microsoft Windows SNMP extension APIs. This means that the Windows operating system will register this subagent with its SNMP stack by creating an entry for the dll in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\Extensions
and forward any queries against the Director Agent enterprise OID to this dll for processing."

There is no entry for the above dll in the registry and here is another note

"Ensure that the Director Agent SNMP subagent is registered by the Windows SNMP stack by
opening the registry and navigating to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\Extensions and checking for the ‘umssnmp’entry"

Not sure how I would go about registering the dll....any ideas?

Thanks for the points.  Somehow I missed your response, but to registry a DLL you can use regsrv32:
