    tayyabrao

      Hi Team,

       

      I am trying to monitor AIX Server via SAM. what I may require apart from SSH credentials.?

       

      do i require  snmp string as well for that ?

          You can do it as little or as much as you like. We have both SNMP and SSH script pulling data. We have even mapped our PowerVM stats to show what runs where. If you can think of it, you can likely do it.

            In case you haven't see this already: https://support.solarwinds.com/Success_Center/Network_Performance_Monitor_(NPM)/Enable_SNMP_access_and_trap_forwarding_for_AIX

             

             

             

            Enable SNMP access and trap forwarding for AIX

             

             

            Overview

            This article describes how to enable SNMP access and trap forwarding on AIX. SNMP access and trap forwarding enable SNMP-based managers to poll the managed system and receive its alerts. If System Health Monitoring is also installed on the managed system, hardware alerts can be forwarded as SNMP traps.

            Environment

            All Orion Core versions

            Steps

            1. With root authority, open the /etc/snmpdv3.conf file in a text editor.
            2. Create a community entry for the customized access view. You can create a new community entry or reuse the default community entry. For example: # communityName securityName securityLevel netAddr netMask storageType COMMUNITY myDirector myDirector noAuthNoPriv 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 -
            3. Define a security group that includes the community you defined. You can create a new group entry or reuse the default group entry. For example: # groupName securityModel securityName storageType VACM_GROUP mygroup_v1 SNMPv1 myDirector – VACM_GROUP mygroup_v2c SNMPv2c myDirector -Note: The security group name cannot begin with director_group.
            4. Define a view entry to include or exclude MIB objects. For example: # viewName viewSubtree viewMask viewType storageType VACM_VIEW director_View internet - included - VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.4.1.2.2.1.1.1.0 - included - VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.191.1.6 - included - VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.159 - included - # exclude snmpv3 related MIBs from the view VACM_VIEW director_View snmpModules - excluded - VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.4 - included - VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.6.3.1.1.5 - included - # exclude aixmibd managed MIBs from the view VACM_VIEW director_View 1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.191 - excluded -
            5. Create an access entry to authorize the security group to the customized access view. For example: # groupName securityLevel securityModel readView notifyView VACM_ACCESS mygroup_v1 - - noAuthNoPriv SNMPv1 director_View - director_View - VACM_ACCESS mygroup_v2c - - noAuthNoPriv SNMPv2c director_View - director_View -
            6. To configure SNMP traps, perform steps 7 and 8. Otherwise, go to step 9.
            7. Specify a target address value for each destination to which the IBM Director will send SNMP traps. For example: # targetAddrName tDomain tAddress tagList targetParams TARGET_ADDRESS Target1 UDP 9.181.65.131 traptag trapparms1 - - -
            8. Specify a trap community value. For example: # paramsName mpModel securityModel securityName securityLevel storageType TARGET_PARAMETERS trapparms1 SNMPv1 SNMPv1 myDirector noAuthNoPriv -
            9. Save and close the /etc/snmpdv3.conf file.
            10. Stop and restart the cimlistener daemon by typing the following commands and pressing Enter after each: /opt/freeware/cimom/pegasus/bin/cimlistener -s /opt/freeware/cimom/pegasus/bin/cimlistener
            11. Stop and restart the IBM Director AgentX subagent by typing the following commands and pressing Enter after each: /opt/ibm/icc/cimom/bin/icesnmp stop /opt/ibm/icc/cimom/bin/icesnmp start
