what are your clients, what services are they using and what management software have you got? – Chopper3 Jul 7 '10 at 16:35

This answer assumes you want to enable SNMP on either XP or 2003. The Windows source directory, i386, needs to be configured correctly for this to work.

Create a file titled "snmp.txt" that contains the following:


Run the following command to install the SNMP feature:

sysocmgr.exe /i:%WINDIR%\inf\sysoc.inf /u:"%PATH_TO_FILE%\snmp.txt"

This can be performed remotely via Computer Logon script or with a tool such as psexec.

You can use Group Policy to configure the SNMP settings. In gpmc.msc look under Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Network, SNMP to see the available options.
