    You can try the below steps .

     

    Configuration for embedded SNMP for ESX Classic and ESXi 4.0 and 4.1

    If it needs to be re-created, a default snmp.xml file looks like this:

     

    Edit the snmp.xml file in the /etc/vmware/ directory. After you edit the file you will need to restart the services "services.sh restart." This will not affect the VMs on the host.

     

     

    <config>

     

    <snmpSettings>

    <enable>false</enable>

    <communities></communities>

    <targets></targets>

    </snmpSettings>

    </config>

     

    Example:

    <config>

    <snmpSettings>

    <enable>true</enable>

    <communities>SNMPString</communities>

    <targets>x.x.x.x</targets>

    </snmpSettings>

    </config>

     

    restart the services "services.sh restart."
