Which rpm package did you use?  Make sure it's the errata that Red Hat
released @
You did install the dell agent(dellomsa) or restart it?  Try installing
OpenManage System Administrator.  You can find it @ for DOMNA01.tar.  It contains the agent to monitor
dell hardware.  This agent uses the SMUX protocol.

This should work.

Subject: OpenManage - SNMP upgrade with Dell MIB support???

Because of the vunerabilities with the SNMP daemon that shipped with
OpenManage, namely ucd-snmp-4.1.2-8smux.i386.rpm, I have been trying to
figure out how to upgrade and still retain the Dell MIB. Has anyone 
done this?

At first I was told by Dell to just upgrade the SNMP RPMs through the Red
Hat Network. Only problem is that the new RPM, doesn't contain an SNMP agent
with the Dell MIB compiled into it. Because of this, 
OpenMange is basically useless. No temperatures, no voltages, no fan

I have been trying to compile SNMP from the source using the 10892.mib that
was shipped with the original Dell SNMP package. I have gotten the C code
and header files using mib2c, but am getting errors when 
actually issuing the make command.

Does Dell have a new SNMP package or not? Does anyone know how to compile or
has compiled the source to include Dell's mib? 

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
