ESXi 5.0 SNMP

Is there a way to check SNMP settings on an ESXi 5.0 host -- from the console ONLY?

SNMP configuration are stored on the ESXi host in /etc/vmware/snmp.xml

so a cat /etc/vmware/snmp.xml should show you the configuration.

However the supported way of changing ESXi SNMP is not be directly editing this file. (although some do!).

The vSphere CLI command vicfg-snmp.pl should be used to change configuration.

Please also note, that in the FREE Licensed version of ESXi,  changes to SNMP cannot be made.
