|Issue||Modify default SNMP system location information for appliance 3.0|
When monitoring appliance 3.0 via SNMP, an information 'Location" is read from the appliance, and the value is always "here". Some users may want to modify this value to reflect the real system location, such as "Sydney Office".
The "SNMP Community String" defined in Operations Console is for Read-Only community. So it's not possible to modify the location value from the SNMP client because there is no Read-write community.
The MIB file downloaded from the appliance's operations console contains three MIB files. One of them is 10892.mib which is provided by DELL. There is an object called "chassisSystemLocationName" which describes the location.
"0300.0010.0001.0018 This attribute defines the location of the system."
1. Please ssh to your appliance as emcsrv.
2. After login, change user from emcsrv to root with the linux command "sudo su - root".
3. Change the directory to /etc/snmp
4. Find and open the snmpd.conf file
[root@kalappliance snmp]# ll

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 485 Jan 25 16:12 snmpd.conf.bak
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18555 Jun 30 2011 snmpd.confe
