How do you enable VMware ESX Server to be monitored using SNMP?


How do you enable VMware ESX Server to be monitored using SNMP?

To enable SNMP in ESX Server, follow these simple steps:
  1. Connect to your server via SSH or go to the server’s console
  2. Edit /etc/snmp/snmp.conf and add a community string to the rocommunity value
  3. Enable SNMP to start automatically when the server starts with chkconfig snmpd on
  4. Either reboot the server (so that the SNMPd will start automatically) or start the SNMP daemon by typing service snmpd start
