Hi Guys

I am trying to enable SNMP on an ESXi 4.1 box.

So far I have edited the /etc/vmware/snmp.xml file as below:

<config>
        <snmpSettings>
                <enable>true</enable>
                <comunities>public</comunities>
                <targets>127.0.0.1@161 public</targets>
        </snmpSettings>
</config>

After saving the file I restarted the services using "services.sh restart" command

These settings do not seem to be working, could someone please help?

Thanks a lot

Joao
