SNMP with Dell OM tools

Well I finally stumbled across a solution to this and thought I'd share.
Turns out all the systems giving the authentication errors had the
OpenManage tools and snmpd.conf file set up by a windows guy here
running winscp. So the files were all in the DOS version of ASCII with
CRLF terminators. After I noticed this and converted them to UNIX ASCII
everything is working fine.
Hope this helps soneone else in the future.

We're running RHEL4 on about 40 dell systems. All of these systems have
the same snmpd.conf file. We seem to have a group of about 10 systems
that consistantly return this error when the nightly discovery runs
(hostnames have been changed to protect the innocent):
Device:hostname.domain.com 10.148.8.14, Service Tag:22QKR91, Asset Tag:,
Date:01/24/07, Time:05:05:06:000, Severity:Critical,
Any ideas on this?
