Overview
--------

The BASP sub-agent, baspmgnt.dll, is designed for the Windows 2000 and 
Windows NT SNMP Service. It is required to install the SNMP service
before installing BASP sub-agent.

The BASP sub-agent allows an SNMP manager software to actively 
monitor the configurations and performance of the Broadcom 
Advanced Server features.  The sub-agent also provides an alarm
trap to an SNMP manager to inform the manager of any changes to
the conditions of the BASP component.

The BASP sub-agent allows monitoring of the configurations and
statistics for the BASP teams, the physical NIC adapters participating
in a team, and the virtual NIC adapters created as the result of teaming.
The BASP configuration data includes information such as team IDs, 
physical/virtual/VLAN/team adapter IDs, physical/virtual/VLAN/team/ adapter 
descriptions, and MAC addresses of the adapters.

The statistics include detailed information such as data packets
transmitted and received for the physical/virtual/VLAN/team adapters.

The alarm trap sends back to an SNMP manager information about the changes
in configuration of the physical adapters participating in a team, such as
physical adapter link up/down, and adapter installed/removed events.

To monitor this information, an SNMP manager needs to load the Broadcom
BASP MIB database files to allow monitoring of the information described
above.  These files shown below, are included with the Broadcom installation CD:

baspconfig.mib
baspstat.mib
basptrap.mib

The monitored system running BASP requires installation of the BASP
SNMP sub-agent component and either the Microsoft Windows 2000 or 
Windows NT 4.0 SNMP service to be installed.  Installation of this 
component should be done through the BASCS setup application.  See the Broadcom Advanced Server Control Suite section in the User Guide for detail information on this installation.


Manual Installation
-------------------
(1) Make sure Microsoft SNMP Service is installed.
(2) Use registry editor to add following keys:
    (a) Go to 
    "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SNMP\Parameters\ExtensionAgent" 
    sub-key.
    (b) Locate the highest number shown under this sub-tree and create
    a new DWORD value with the name as one plus the highest number, e.g. if
    the highest number shown is 5, create a DWORD value key with name "6"
    and the value as "SOFTWARE\Broadcom\BASPAgent\CurrentVersion".
    (c) Go to "HKLM\Software".
    (d) Create three sub-keys underneath this tree as 
    "Broadcom\BASPAgent\CurrentVersion".
    (e) Go to "HKLM\Software\Broadcom\BASPAgent\CurrentVersion".
    (f) Create a STRING key with the name "pathname" and the value as
    "%systemroot%\system32\baspmgnt.dll"
(3) Open a command prompt and enter "net stop SNMP" to stop  
    the current running instance of the SNMP service.
(4) Enter "net start snmp" to restart the SNMP service.
