SNMP traps query Joshua_Giles at

The Server Administrator Instrumentation MIB (10892.mib) is installed when
Server Administrator is installed.  After Server Administrator is installed
on Linux, the Instrumentation MIB can be found at
/usr/lib/dell/openmanage/omsa/mibs/10892.mib.  It defines the
Instrumentation traps at the end of the file.

To send traps from a Server Administrator system, you need to configure the
SNMP agent to send traps to one or more destinations.  Instructions for
doing that are in the Server Administrator User's Guide.  Go to the
"Configuring the SNMP Agent" section under the "Setup and Administration"
section.  The User's Guide is available on the Product Documentation CD and

The traps MIB(as well as other Dell Server MIBs) should be in the
/support/dcpemibs directory on the Systems Management CD.  

I found Dell server MIBs at, but the only MIB release I
found was dated 4/24/2001 which is pre-Server Administrator.  I will try to
get someone to update the support website.
