snmp needed

I need to install snmp agents on a proliant dl360 G6 running RHEL 5.5 and HP SIM 6.0; what are the SNMP components required and where can I find them? TIA

Re: snmp needed



I just checked on the HP's webpage for that you can find SNMP agents on this link:


It also has some Prerequisites:

The hp-health and hp-snmp-agents run as 32 bit applications in the x86_64 environment. The Linux kernel 32 bit compatibility must be enabled (usual default for Linux) and the 32 bit compatibility libraries must be present.


You can find them here:


-After installation you can run this command to autoconfigure SNMP:






rwcommunity public
rocommunity public
rwcommunity public SIM server IP address (If there is any)
rocommunity public SIM server IP address (If there is any)
trapcommunity public
trapsink public SIM server IP address (If there is any)
syscontact Sysadmin (root@localhost)
syslocation Server_Room


-To manually configure SNMP the file should be here /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf


Once the file is configured proceed to restart the agents with the following command:


#service hp-health restart
#service hp-snmp-agents restart


-To check if SNMP is working and all services are loaded correctly:


#/etc/init.d/hp-snmp-agents status


If you need something else, let me know.

Re: snmp needed

Thank you very much vf; but before I go ahead and do it, I'd like to double check on these 32 bit libraries; what exactly do I need to install and how do I avoid screwing things up that would otherwise require 64 bit. This is just a demo, but it's my goal to make it look as production ready as possible; i am using old technologies like HP SIM 6 and DL360 G6 becuase this is what i have available. Thanks again.
