Is there a way on a RHEL server to blacklist external hard drives from SNMP configuration so that if and external HD fills up, SNMP doesn't 'detect' it.

This depends on your SNMP daemon (and which MIB you're using).

If you're using net-snmp and the Host Resources MIB: No.
Host Resources polls all attached storage devices - there's no way I'm aware of to change its list.

If you're using net-snmp and the disk configuration directive: Yes.
Simply don't list drives you don't want to poll.

If you're using some other SNMP daemon: You're on your own :-)
