Hi, colleagues!

We have provider with big multivendor network.
They have 1 third-party NMS which control, monitor and configure all network.
Question: What MIBs have Extreme Wi-Fi controllers to configure them?

I find only below information in Maint_Guide:
• set support– ENTERASYS-CONFIGURATIONMANAGEMENT-MIB
– ENTERASYS-RADIUS-ACCT-CLIENT-EXT-MIB ('set' supported for this MIB except
scalar elements)
– ENTERASYS-RADIUS-AUTH-CLIENT-MIB ('set' supported for this MIB except scalar
elements)
– ENTERASYS-POLICY-PROFILE-MIB (not all tables supported)
– ENTERASYS-CLASS-OF-SERVICE-MIB (not all tables supported)
– Q-BRIDGE-MIB (dot1qVlanStaticTable only)
• get support
BRIDGE-MIB (dot1dBasePortTable)

Thank you!

Hi Alex,

you can't configure the WLAN controller via a SNMP - this is not supported.

Hi, Ron!

But then what mean "set support of MIBs"?

Thank you!

The controller is sending SNMP to the NMS = SNMP traps.
For that SNMP message to be readable in the NMS you'd need to install the controller MIB on the NMS.

Ronald!

"The controller is sending SNMP to the NMS = SNMP traps" - it's named "snmp get"
(NMS asking for some information - controller give this information (for example controllers temperature))

"snmp set" - it's mean that NMS give command, for example, create vlan with some tag.

Maint_Guide_V9.12 said: 
"By using the Netsight Suite and the following MIBs, you can configure the IdentiFi Wireless Appliance to create and manage
policy, VNS, VLAN; backup and restore configurations."

So we can configure Controller via SNMP.

So questions:
1. Can we do this with third-party NMS?
2. Is there more detailed information about this SET MIBs?

Thank you!
