The VMWARE-OBSOLETE-MIB.mib file contains all previously published managed objects that have been made obsolete. This file is provided to maintain compatibility with older versions of ESX/ESXi.

The variables defined in this file were originally defined in previous versions of the VMWARE-RESOURCES-MIB.mib and VMWARE-TRAPS-MIB.mib files. Variables Defined in VMWARE-OBSOLETE-MIB lists the variables defined in VMWARE-OBSOLETE-MIB.mib.

Traps Defined in VMWARE-OBSOLETE-MIB

Trap

Description

ESX/ESXi Traps

vmPoweredOn

This trap is sent when a virtual machine is powered on from a suspended or powered off state.

vmPoweredOff

This trap is sent when a virtual machine is powered off.
