Configuration of SNMP for 5.x is the same.

To check if it has been configured correctly, you will need to test it, and compare the values.

test using, this is using the vicfg-snmp.pl command from the Remote CLI or vSphere CLI. There have been issues in ensuring you get the correct version downloaded, for different versions of ESXi.

vicfg-snmp.pl --server hostname --username username --password password --test
