Try stopping and restarting the snmpd daemon -
stopsrc  -s snmpd
startsrc  -s snmpd
and try an ovstart for netmon and see if that helps.

If not, edit /etc/snmpd.conf and make certain that public is a read community

By the way, just plain 5.1 is out of support.  You should be on 5.1.3

Hi, this is my problem:

I have Netview 5.1on AIX 4.3.2

and netmon doesn't start. In the netmon.trace file this is the message:

Cannot communicate with SNMP Agent via loopback address (; it is
either not running or has been configured with a community name different
from that configured into TME 10 NetView for this system. If a community
name ha
s been configured into the SNMP Agent, that community name must be
via xnmsnmpconf and /usr/OV/conf/ovsnmp.conf for address as well
as for the hostname or IP address of this system.
Or, the /usr/OV/conf/snmpmib and /usr/OV/conf/snmpmib.bin files are
and need to be rebuilt using the
Maintain->Rebuild MIB binary file with installation MIB defaults
option in smit

How can I do to solve this problem?

Thank you for help!!

Cordiali saluti / Best regards.
