SNMP monitoring for SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 IA 64

Hello colleagues,


Could you help me with my question?

We have server HP Integrity rx6600. We wrote a software to monitor it's hardware components via SNMP. For that purpose we used standard SLES daemon 'snmpd'. But using it we can see only major hardware components - time, cpu load, etc... But we need more detailed information, for example, status of HDDs, Fan speed, etc... ASIK Hewlett-Packard has the SNMPD "addition" which allows to monitor that items on HP hardware. 

I searched in Internet and founded that "HP Insight Foundation Suite for Integrity with Linux - Support Pack" contains such SNMP agents...

I downloaded version for my SLES 11 but it doesn't work for my system:

Constructing available options for this distro:
....Unexpected error: <type 'exceptions.RuntimeError'>



I searched tar-archive and founded some RPMs:






I installed them all, restarted snmpd but still command 

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public .


SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.232 = No Such Object available on this agent at this OID


In other case in page:

where I get that software that all SNMP-related RPMs are only for Red-Hat in list.


Please could you say:

1) Does HP snmp agent for IA64 supports only RedHat?

2) Is any other way to monitor HP hardware on SLES 11 IA64 via SNMP?


Thanks in advance.
