Installing custom or additional MIB files
Before you install custom or additional MIB files, be sure you first complete the steps in Importing pre-loaded MIB organizers and files to create an uploadedMIBs directory.
- Log in to the Control Center master host as root, or as a user with superuser privileges.
Copy any MIBs and their dependencies that you want to install into the
directory on the Control Center master host. Replace
<instance_id> with the appropriate ID for your instance.
Once those files are copied to that directory, they will be immediately available inside containers at /opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBs with no restart needed.
Execute the following command to install the MIB.
serviced service run zope zenmib run -v10 \ /opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBs/<MIB_filename> \ --path=/<device_class> --removemiddlezeros \ --mibdepsdir=/opt/zenoss/var/ext/uploadedMIBs
The --removemiddlezeros flag is needed when MIBs use notification OIDs with embedded zeros.
