SIM 7.2 Dell hardware monitoring

OK, finally found a recent doc that lists a number of MIB's needed to monitor Dell hardware from SIM 7.2. There appears to be a problem with compiling the *DRAC* mibs due to syntax errors within the .mib file.


c:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\mibs>mcompile iDRAC-SMIv2.mib

HP Systems Insight Manager Mib Compiler, Version
Copyright (c) 2003-2006 Hewlett Packard Corporation

Compiling iDRAC-SMIv2.mib

Line: 6123: Error defining object: found ::=SEQUENCE
Mib compilation failed.


Has anyone had a similiar problem and/or been able to get it resolved?


Thanks in advance!

Hi BuddyD,


I had the same trouble.


Open the mib file in a text editor. Just remove the space between ::= and SEQUENCE. Replace ::=SEQUENCE by ::= SEQUENCE . Than, you'll be able to compile your iDRAC-SMIV1.MIB file and to registrate your iDRAC-SMIV1.CFG file.


Following procedure , I have the problem that I cannot see any MIB variabel names in the MIB definition file iDRAC-SMIV1.MIB.


Let me know what the result is.


Success !

Re: SIM 7.2 Dell hardware monitoring

Just replying to this old thread, I had to ADD a space between ::= and SEQUENCE. There was no space already and I was receiving the compliler error. Once I inserted a space it compiled fine.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction guys.
