Mac OS-X

Post25. Mar 2009, 22:45

Hello

Is there an example for a MIB for Macs I could use as a starting point?
I'd be interested in a MIB for Macs with OS X 10.5.x. I managed to have SNMP running on my Mac, now I should compile a MIB.

Best regards.

Hello,

LOGINventory isn't using MIBs.

To discover the possiblities of an SNMP agent on a particular system:
- Download and install NET-SNMP on your PC
- Execute SNMPWALK against that particular system

Hello - IT! Have you tried turning it off and on again?
Next step: Check DNS.

ini-file for Apple Mac OS X

Post3. Apr 2009, 02:49

Hello

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I confused MIBs (what the SNMP device uses) and the ini file (what Loginventory uses). So I would like to rephrase my question: Is there an example for an ini file that can be used with loginventory to scan Apple Macs running under OS X?
I sure will give SNMPWALK a try but I hoped someone could have saved me from a bit of typing.

Best regards

Mac MIB

Post3. Apr 2009, 10:14

Hello,

Apple Mac Server all have SNMP preinstalled, on client you have to do this manually.
The retrieved data is very similar to what comes from a standard Linux system like Red Hat or Suse with Net-SNMP v5.
Note: There is only 1 Apple Macintosh MIB, see: http://www.oidview.com/mibs/63/apple-ma ... m-mib.html

This is interesting, too: http://www.bynkii.com/archives/2007/12/ ... s_x_1.html

Mac MIB and ini-file

Post3. Apr 2009, 13:58

Hello again

That's correct. On Mac clients SNMP needs to be installed separately. I did this quite a while ago and actually had used the information from the second link you have provided. Worked like a charm! I'll have to do it again, though, because the Mac I used to test it on has been reinstalled with a new image. :(

This morning I set up Net-SNMP on my Windows box. Took me a while to figure out which of the dozens of parameters snmpwalk wanted (the help is very terse) but then I got a nice read out from a printer. So I hope to soon be able to scan my Macs!
If I'm successful I'll report here.

Again, thank you very much for your help. Very much appreciated!
