You can use SNMP tools to diagnose configuration problems.
- Run the esxcli system snmp test command from the ESXCLI set to prompt the SNMP agent to send a test warmStart trap.
- Run the esxcli system snmp get command to display the current configuration of the SNMP agent.
- The SNMPv2-MIB.mib file provides several counters to aid in debugging SNMP problems. See SNMPv2 Diagnostic Counters.
- The VMWARE-AGENTCAP-MIB.mib file defines the capabilities of the VMware SNMP agents by product version. Use this file to determine if the SNMP functionality that you want to use is supported.
