Nagios MIBs

In Nagios, I need to monitor RAID.  It is a Dell R710 server and I
have downloaded the Dell MIBs for this and placed the file I got from Dell
in /usr/share/snmp/mibs/  and renamed it to StorageManagement-MIB.txt.

Some internet sites say you can just place the MIB file there and it will
work.  I have tried running mib2c and mib2c-update as some sites
have suggested but haven't had any luck.  Following

The following will return the MIB number for this value

snmptranslate -m +StorageManagement-MIB -IR -On arrayDiskState

However running the following:

snmpget -v2c -c public localhost .


SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10893. = No Such Object available
on this agent at this OID

I am beginning to wonder if I have to uninstall net-snmp and re-install it
compiling in the Dell MIB file.

O/S = RHE 4

Appreciate any feedback,

Did you recycle snmpd?
dka07Author Commented:
Thanks for the response.
Yes, we have done that.
Just a thought, when snmp walking the mib tree there were a number of errors..

The only thing on the net I could see was related to the mib being wrong for
the kernel? Any ideas? Rgds, dave.

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost .

Regarding your original question, "No Such Object available on this agent at this OID" message means that this OID is not supported by the agent.  If it were just that you were leaving off the index (ie arrayDiskState.1, arrayDiskState.2) you would get a "No Such Instance currently exists at this OID" instead.

I've never used this MIB before, but from what I've found on google, here's the important bits:

-Do you have Open Manage Server Administrator installed, and SNMP enabled in it?
-Is your snmpd.conf properly configured to query OMSA?

The following link is geared towards debian, but may help: http://lazorsoftware.blogspot.com/2008/05/dell-openmanage-server-administrator.html

Also, a quick check on oidview.com shows that StorageManagement-MIB::arrayDiskState resolves to (what snmptranslate resolved arrayDiskState to) is actually StorageManagement-MIB::virtualDiskLayout

Finally, since you are using RHEL4, this may also be relevant: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=462016
