SNMP dead but subsys locked!

Hi,

Unable to enable my snmpd service. This is my output:

[root@trvmp13 ~]# service snmpd status
snmpd dead but subsys locked


[root@trvmp13 ~]# lsof -ni udp:161
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE NODE NAME
vmware-ho 2951 root 100u IPv4 9286935 UDP *:snmp
[root@trvmp13 ~]#

lsof-command indicates that there is something blocked.

How can I get this to work? Need the snmp to manage ESX with HP Virtual Macine Management Pack- HP VMM.

Thanx

Re: SNMP dead but subsys locked!

check snmpd pid from /var/lock/subsys
if it exist in ps -ef|grep pid then kill it and remove this file.

run 'bash -x ./snmpd start'

Probably you may have to kill 2951 from

vmware-ho 2951 root 100u IPv4 9286935 UDP *:snmp

and start it again.
