Need to enable SNMP

Hi Friends,

I am running with a blade 870C and 11.31.When I am trying to take some details through Open view, it says that SNMP should be enabled on the server.Can I get a procedure for the same...?

thanks in advance

Re: Need to enable SNMP

Hi Jineesh,

The SNMP Master Agent and all subAgents should startup automatically each time the system re-boots or any time the system transitions from run level 1 to run level 2. When the system enters run level 2 the operating system will execute /sbin/init.d/SnmpMaster which will startup the Master Agent. Similarly, the operating system invoked /sbin/init.d/SnmpMib2, /sbin/init.d/SnmpHpunix and /sbin/init.d/SnmpTrpDst will startup the MIB2, HP Unix and Trap Dest subAgents respectively immediately after the Master Agent is started.

There are two ways to start the SNMP Agent manually. The first way is to execute snmpdm and then start each subAgent. Separate process subAgents are started by invoking the particular subAgent executables.

The simplest way to start the SNMP Agent manually is to execute the snmpd startup script which will invoke the Master Agent and all subAgents who have been installed and designed to operate in this paradigm.

#/sbin/init.d/SnmpMaster start
Best wishes,
