Linux SNMP nodes should show up as Linux rather than net-snmp

Linux SNMP nodes should show up as Linux rather than net-snmp

Like the title says, all Linux devices show up Net-SNMP rather than linux for the vendor.

There should be a way to list these servers as the correct vendor.

You might be right, maybe they should be able to, but I can't imagine why they wouldn't have had it been simple.
Leon wrote a shell script that will help:
osname.sh osname.sh

And you can see it in action in the lab episode:

LINUX LOVE

We have decided not to use shell scripts via SSH because it spams the history and last logins.

I understand, we are thinking about moving to the agent for that very reason.(and others)

NET-SNMP is not Linux specific. There are a wide variety of different operating systems that NET-SNMP can be used on, such as Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX.
