ESX 3.01: Agent multiple SNMP destinations

I am installing HP insight agents on an ESX 3.0.1 server.

I want to configure multiple destinations for the SNMP traps (primary and secondary HP Sim server).

I edited in the hpmgmt.conf file the line CMATRAPDESTINATIONIPORDNS=”10.0.0.1 10.0.0.2”

Supplying the command line: “./installvm770.sh --silent --inputfile hpmgmt.conf”, the script finished successfully.
When I check the SNMP setting on the ESX host, only the first IP address is added

Does someone knows how to supply multiple destinations in the hpmgmt.conf file?

Re: ESX 3.01: Agent multiple SNMP destinations

I believe you can just add another line

CMATRAPDESTINATIONIPORDNS=10.0.0.1
CMATRAPDESTINATIONIPORDNS=10.0.0.2

All this script is doing is configuring the file /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf for you.

If the above doesn't work try this:

Edit the file:

/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

You should see a line with something like:

trapsink simserver.yourdomain.com

Add another line like this, with your backup SIM server.

Then restart the net-snmp service.

/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

Hope it helps.

If this is still an issue for you I figured it out today. I posted my solution in another forum:
