Prerequisites:
==============
  1. Novell NetWare v4.11
  2. Novell NetWare SNMP Master Agent.
  3. Intel DMI Service Provider. Please download the Service provider
     from www.intel.com/ial/wfm/tools/netsdk/index.htm and follow
     installation instructions.  

 Note:  It is strongly recommended that both NetWare SNMP and Intel 
        DMI Service Provider be installed before installing this
        package.


Installation instructions:
==========================
1. Install the Intel DMI Service provider for NetWare taking extra
care to follow the instructions provided with the download.  This
requires a Windows NT 4.0 station on your network to install from,
with your NetWare server mapped as a drive. 

2. On the NetWare server load the Install NLM from the command prompt.
Select Other Product options and appropriate Source drive e.g A:\dmi-snmp\snmp\nwserver

3. Follow the directions given by the 'Intel DMI-SNMP Client
Instrumentation' install from there.


Usage with Applications:
=========================
   1. With SNMP Agent: 
      - Make sure that NetWare SNMP Agent NLM and Intel DMI Service
        Provider are installed and configured

   2. With SNMP Manager: (HP-Open View etc.)
      - Load/compile  intel.mib and intelnic.mib

   3. Use Intel DMI Explorer or any other DMI compliant Management
      application on the Management Station (any Win32 Client connected
      to NetWare Server) to access management information. 


Unsupported features in the Intel DMI-SNMP Client Instrumentation
==================================================================

1. An exclusive Instrumentation directory for placing the NLM files

2. SETS/TRAPS.

Messages
========

You may see the following messages under the specified conditions.

Condition: When the Instrumentation is up and running

   Context 1: Unload a driver managed by the DMI Client Instrumentation
   Message: Unloading the driver will cause DMI-SNMP Client 
   Instrumentation and Intel DMI-SNMP Network Device Manager 
   <Intel_NI.nlm and IntelNDM.nlm> not to support queries for its 
   attributes.

   Context 2: Load a driver managed by the DMI Client Instrumentation
   Message: You MUST unload Intel DMI-SNMP Network Client 
   Instrumentation and Intel DMI-SNMP Network Device Manager 
   <Intel_NI.nlm and IntelNDM.nlm> before loading a new LAN driver. If
   you load the driver anyway, unload and load Instrumentation
   immediately for SAFE functionality. Do not run queries WITHOUT
   performing above mentioned steps.
