iBootBar SNMP monitoring

iBootBar SNMP monitoring

Postby kindz » July 8th, 2015, 6:28 am

What should the SNMP settings be so that any node on our network could perform snmpwalks on it, e.g.

snmpwalk -v2c -c public ibootbar01.oursubnet.local

?

Currently getting timeouts as if putting the wrong rocommunity string in. Port 161 seems to be open.

SNMP settings

Is there such a thing as read-only monitoring of iBootBars via SNMP? If so why does it insist in private strings and specifying managing IP addresses?

Thanks!

Same potential issue as your other post.
Since the discovered units are red, the reboot will apply any ipaddress change.

The SNMP manager needs an ipaddress to send traps to, and the checkbox to be enabled.
The read community and write community are more like passwords. Default for all that I have seen is "private" and "public".

Once enabled, your SNMP manager should be able to walk it. provided the ipaddress is correct and the passwords match.
(your screenshot shows rocommunitystring but the command in your post shows public)
I am not sure which the iBB unit is using, because I am not sure if the settings were successfully uploaded to the device.

As always, feel free to contact support directly if you need to.

Didn't need IP address updates, just SNMP settings.

snmpwalk started working on one of our iBBs but not the other despite seemingly identical settings.

Seems to only poll for uptime, syslocation, syscontact, etc.

Is there anything else I could monitor IBB for?

How do I set sysLocation, sysContact, etc.? Current values are garbage and doing something like...
Code: Select all
$ snmpset -v 1 -c 'private' iBB01 sysContact.0 s abc

... results in "Timeout: No Response from iBB01" while...

Code: Select all
$ snmpset -v 1 -c 'public' iBB01 sysContact.0 s abc

...gives me:
Error in packet.
Reason: (noSuchName) There is no such variable name in this MIB.
Failed object: SNMPv2-MIB::sysContact.0


How does one set these values on iBB?

Can you tell me more about the command you are using?
Is it a unix command line or a windows stand alone application that you are passing parameters to?

Net-SNMP 5.6 , part of OSX 10.10 - the commands are the same across various Net-SNMP distributions.

Basically - yes, a Unix command line - but it's not part of the OS - it's part of Net-SNMP packages installed on top of the OS.

Sam, how does one set basic SNMP values on iBB like sysLocation, sysContact, etc.?

Sorry for the delay.

A You are using the command:
    snmpwalk -v2c -c public ibootbar01.oursubnet.local
I suspect this may work:
    snmpwalk -v1 -c public ibootbar01.oursubnet.local
B Looks like the variables you are trying to get are standard SNMP variables, but are not supported by the iBB.
