OMSA help in unsupported install...

I'm trying to install what is probably an unsupported OMSA (5.1.0) on
a very much unsupported OS (rpath linux, specifically OpenFiler NAS/SAN
appliance 2.3).  And I'm hoping despite that maybe someone on this list
might be able to help me. :)

I have OMSA installed and running.  omreport works and reports everything
except storage (because OMSA 5.1.0 pre-dates the perc 6/i in the machine,
so this is excepted to fail).  So everything looks good locally...  I can
see everything I've tried (fans, volts, temps, system summary, etc) other
than storage as noted above.

In /var/log/messages, I can see that OMSA is trying to talk to snmpd, ala:

Feb  3 14:01:53 filer2 snmpd: snmpd startup succeeded
Feb  3 14:01:53 filer2 snmpd[24188]: NET-SNMP version 5.4.1
Feb  3 14:01:54 filer2 snmpd[24188]: [smux_accept] accepted fd 9 from  
127.0.0.1:60802
Feb  3 14:01:54 filer2 snmpd[24188]: accepted smux peer: oid  
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, descr Systems Management SNMP MIB  
Plug-in Manager

But when I remotely snmpwalk it, it returns no values.  It is connecting,
again via /var/log/messages:

Feb  3 14:02:48 filer2 snmpd[24188]: Connection from UDP:  
[172.16.111.73]:56624
Feb  3 14:02:48 filer2 snmpd[24188]: Received SNMP packet(s) from UDP:  
[172.16.111.73]:56624
Feb  3 14:02:48 filer2 snmpd[24188]: Connection from UDP:  
[172.16.111.73]:56624

So, the question I have is: how would I go about trying to diagnose why I
can't remotely query the machine via snmp?  Any tips at all (local checks,
snmpd config checks, OMSA config checks, etc) appreciated, since I'm rather
a novice at setting up snmpd as well as unsupported OMSA setups. :)

Thanks in advance for any help that might come my way.
