Re: [nv-l] RedHat Snmpd ?
I haven't tried with RHEL 3.0 but RedHat certainly used to ship the SNMP
agent with earlier versions such that it only responded to MIB queries
from the system table. Mark's SAMPLE2 snmpd.conf shows setting a view
called "all" which solves that problem.
What version of SNMP agent are you running on your RHEL? There is a
note in the NetView 7.1.4 Fixpack 3 README that says:
IY56765 UNIX Demand poll fails on SNMP V3 for the Linux platform
PS. NetView 7.1.4 Fixpack 3 was released on April 1st, 2005. No real
new functionality but lots of fixes. It can be obtained from

I am running Netview 7.1.4 FP2 on AIX 5.2 ML04.
I have several linux servers and they are all show up as non-snmp. I
have call opened with Red Hat. These servers are running RedHat ES3.
I've checked the snmpd.conf file on linux servers (and made a few
changes per RH tech). I do an snmpwalk from the Netview and it just
times out. I check the /var/log/messages on linux and it shows the
requests coming in from Netview but nothing is returned/replied.
Another strange thing is the messages are only logged when I restart
snmpd (and then I do an smpwalk from Netview). So If I restart snmpd
(linux server), then I do an snmpwalk from Netview, the message file
shows "Received SNMP packet..", then it times out. I do another
snmpwalk (also times out) and I do not get another "received snmp" in
the /log/message file.
