SNMP not working on RedHat

I have successfully installed and configured hpasm on a Red Hat 5.4x64 system. SIM pulls all the correct data in once I allowed root access via ssh. However I can seem to get SNMP working as a protocol. I performed a configure/repair agents and SIM modifies the snmpd.conf file correctly but when I do an identify, it says there is no SNMP configured. Do I need to install the hp-snmp-agents as well? I thought hpasm did. Do I have to install SMH on the system too? I am trying to conifigure the min set of agents in order to obtain traps for hardware faults. I cant seem to locate a good doc on what a Red Hat system needs for SIM.

Thanks

Re: SNMP not working on RedHat

I just installed the full PSP and it said it installed SMH, snmp etc... I did repair in SIM and it modified snmpd.conf but when I do an identify in SIM, comes back SMH not installed, SNMP did not respond.

Whats the trick?

Hi,
Did you check your firewall settings as my be the local firewall blocking access to your SMH and SNMP services.
