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