Hello list,

As a followup to the original question to the list:  

We found that the release of net-snmp found in some newer SUSE 9's,  net-snmp-5.1-80.11, when the pass statement (any pass statement) is added to /etc/snmpd.conf, snmpd cores with signal 11 (SIGSEGV).  This doesn't seem to be known in the net-snmp community.

In /etc/init.d/snmpd script, there is a command, startproc.  Add a -C flag after $SNMPD.   After that change, the daemon comes up, processes the pass statement, and stays up.  mgragentd also works and gets passed its oid part.

I don't know why this works :-)     But it does work around the problem as far as NetView is concerned.

This looks like a bug in net-snmp.

Please respond to

[nv-l] Net-snmp on suse 9

Does anyone have net-snmp working on suse 9, instead of ucd-snmp?  This is for netview 7.1.4 fixpack 3.  If I put in the lines:

pass . /bin/sh /usr/OV/bin/mgragentd
view system included .1

Snmp won't start up.  It starts up fine without these.
