Which assistant? The software? If it's the software then you do not need to install SNMP, and can by-pass this.

Otherwise, these settings should be known by the network administrator. They tell the server which SNMP "server" to communicate to.

Good luck!

Re: Prolian ML350.... Started...

I am setting up a Prolian ML350 with SmartStart... it is the first time I do it... so after choossing Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2... there is a step where I am asked about it... and it even sais that is reccomended to install SNMP (I don´t have clear what it is for)... and then I have to write down these three dates...

detailed SNMP(Simple Network Managemnt Protocol) description:

The driendly explanation what is SNMP:
SNMP is a standard(protocol) to "transport" information about your system to a system(Insight manager in your case).

With Smartstart(ProLiant supprort Pack in particulary) you installed the Proliant management agents, which monitor your server's "health" and with the help of SNMP report the problem. This means that without SNMP even if they detect something, you will probably not understand.

So by configuring SNMP you make a way for the info to pass to a central system where you can see graphically what is wrong(if something at all).

Go to control Panel-> Add/Remove programs->Windows components-> Network services-> Simple network man....

install it.

Then Start->run...-> "Services.msc"

Right click SNMP service-> Properties

Go to Traps , at Community name : enter public -> Add to List. Then click add...
enter the if you use System management homepage local or the ip adress of System insight manager...

Repeat the steps and add private.

Then go to communities.

choose public and give it READ/WRITE
choose private and give it READ ONLY.


Right click SNMP service and restart it.
Then in a browser enter http://localhost:2381 and pffff

Re: Prolian ML350.... Started...

I made a mistake , it should be https , not http, but this is not the problem, you should be redirected

If SMH opens and you are able to login(on the right system model:unknown?), then you haven't configured SNMP in the right way, can you post screenshots of the traps and communities pages of SMNP properties?
