I have downloaded the dell MIBs (10892.mib) and placed it in /usr/share/snmp/mibs/, however I _believe_ this has more to do with being able to call the OID by name instead of number, and not with responding to a request for information.
If you did put dell Mibs in /usr/share/snmp/mibs, then it should work
the same for windows and linux box !
actually , I am questionning myself on this issue ... I wonder what is
the use of mibs files ? is it only a question of translating oids to
"human readable" values (.220.127.116.11.4.1 <-> iso.snmp...entreprise) or has
it a "real power" of retreiving datas ? As long as we request oids
by numeric value -> .18.104.22.168.4.1.674.10892.1.300.10.1.11.1 , what's the
need of installing the dell OIDs ? and installing a mib, is it as
simple as putting the mib file in /usr/share/snmp/mibs ?
