Installing additional MIB files
Before you install custom or additional MIB files,
- Create an uploadedMIBs directory as described in Importing pre-loaded MIB organizers and files.
- If you want to load MIBs into a MIBs organizer that does not exist, create the organizer as described in Creating a MIBs organizer.
Perform these steps:
Log in to the Control Center master host as
rootor as a user with superuser privileges.
Copy any MIBs and their dependencies that you want to install into the
/opt/serviced/var/volumes/<instance_id>/zenoss-var-ext/uploadedMIBsdirectory on the Control Center master host. Replace
<instance_id>with the appropriate ID for your instance. After those files are copied to that directory, they are immediately available inside containers at
/opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBswith no restart needed.
Execute the following command to install the MIB. Include
--removemiddlezerosif MIBs use notification OIDs with embedded zeros. Include
--pathto specify an existing MIBs organizer in which to load the MIBs.
serviced service run zope zenmib run -v10 /opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBs/<mib_filename> \ --path=/zport/dmd/Mibs/<mibs_organizer> --removemiddlezeros --mibdepsdir=/opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBs
Restart the zope service and any instances of the zentrap service.
