The Oracle ILOM implementation on the management controller within the switch can communicate the state of and enable remote management of Oracle ILOM through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
An SNMP client is required to interface with the Oracle ILOM SNMP agent on the management controller. The SNMP client must have the appropriate Oracle ILOM MIBs installed. These MIBs are included in the SUN_DCS_36p_x.y.z_w.tar.gz file, the Oracle ILOM firmware package that you downloaded. See Installing the Oracle ILOM Firmware.
Using the SNMP protocol, the client sends requests in the form of object identifiers (OIDs) to the server on the management controller. The tables in Switch Reference, understanding MIB OIDs, provide a listing of object identifiers.
For more information about and use of SNMP with Oracle ILOM, refer to the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 Management Protocols Reference Guide, available online at:
