Problem

I need SNMP access to an ESXi host.

Solution

  1. Enable ssh access to the snmp host.
  2. Enable the v1/v2c community:
    esxcli system snmp set --communities public
  3. Ensure the system will start snmpd at boot time:
    esxcli system snmp set --enable true
Done!

This works through at least ESXi 6.0 (but not on v4 or previous).

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
