I was trying to setup FAN (Nagios + Centreon) to monitor various items on my ML310 G5 server.

I kept getting :

No Such Object available on this agent at this OID

 I could walk the tree locally and remotely but it was clear that I wasn't seeing the HP MIB data

hpasmcli -s "show server"

showed all the data so that was working.

I looked at permissions and a whole pile of things until I found a post that said look at the snmpd.conf file

Lo, there was the answer

As per the book I had used hpsnmpconf to reconfigure snmpd.

At the top it inserted the following lines :

# Following entries were added by HP Insight Management Agents at
#      Tue Oct 15 13:29:45 CEST 2013
dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/
rwcommunity private
rocommunity public
rwcommunity  private
rocommunity  _public
trapcommunity trap
trapsink trap
syscontact Me
# ---------------------- END --------------------

The troublesome line was the first :

dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/

I thought I'd check and find where the file was

and lo the answer was :


Not in /usr/lib

A quick change of path and:

snmpwalk -v2c -c public .

Suddenly gave me all the info !

Clearly a bug with their Debian installer.

  1. It is fact that some vendors use the default Informational for all severity levels. Change the severity to a level that reflects your judgment of the problem. Alternatively, you can change a Major or Critical severity for a trap message that is clearly not a critical situation in your environment.
