|Subject:||[Freeipmi-devel] question about SNMP|

|Hi folks - I can't quite figure out the data stored about SNMP with respect to IPMI and the BMC and I wondered if someone could shed a small bit of light on the topic.|
Basic problem - I can't get the FreeeIPMI *-config tools (e.g. bmc, pef, i-sensors, i-chassis) command to dump the SNMP community string or any data about SNMP at all. In ipmitool it does allow one to retrieve it (trivial example - "ipmitool lan print |grep -i snmp" returns "SNMP Community String : AMI" on one of my boxen. Mind you, I'm not trying to compare tools or anything, just illustrating!)
Is there any way to get that data with the FreeIPMI toolset? The spec (along with the auxiliary Platform Event Trap Format Specification) implied that the BMC could generate a UDP SNMP packet ("LAN Alerts are accomplished by generating a UDP Datagram that contains an SNMP Trap") to a destination for alerts, but the details elude me.
Sorry if I'm missing something basic, or a tool that retrieves this. It's gotta be there somewhere ;)
p.s. The 2.0 IPMI spec says in the Get LAN configuration command section (23.2) that the SNMP community string is one of the configuration parameters supported; it says (pg 322):
