Configure snmp for Esxi and Virtual Center Appliance

If you want to monitor your enviroment using snmp you can. I will recommend going to SNMPv3 not v2 like this….but I just wanted to try


esxcli system snmp set --communities secret
esxcli system snmp set --port 161
esxcli system snmp set --syslocation SERVERROOM
esxcli system snmp set --enable true

Virtual appliance:

snmp.set --port 161
snmp.set --communities secret
snmp.set --loglevel warning
