[Linux-PowerEdge] Monitor disk status by snmp on iDrac 6&7

I tried that document to start with. It has the MIB for storage in the 10893 section and that doesn't exist on the DRAC :(

Although in there it mentions This seems to map to on the iDrac...

I've browsed through it and it seems to make sense with what I'm seeing so that might be as much of a guide as I'm going to get.

I find SNMP with Dell systems confusing -- it can be hard to tell if the SNMP information you want is available from OMSA, or the iDRAC, or both.

I don't understand why Dell doesn't just have a central download site for all things OMSA and iDRAC.  The support site is a labyrinth of amazing proportions.
Anyway, the ...10892.. OID is from OMSA; you can download those from the support page for your service tag, e.g.:
(where "XXXXXXX" is your service tag -- or the service tag of any hardware of the same model)
Then go to the "Drivers & Downloads" tab, expand all (or just expand the Systems Management section) and use your browser to search for "MIBs"

You can also look at the MIBS on the server itself; on Linux they would be in
(they aren't all in one directory -- and for some reason you get more MIBs in the support site download then you'll find on the system!)

These MIBs are documented in the PDF Reference Guide for the version of OMSA you're running from here:
e.g. for OMSA 7.2:

We've got R720 and R720xd's with iDrac 6&7's in them.

If I snmp walk on . then at the bottom on SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892. I can see information on all the disks in the system. However, I seem currently unable to find a MIB file that details all this information. Does anyone have a link to a MIB file that covers all that can be monitored from the DRAC?
