Enable SNMP Red Hat Enterprise

Jump to solution

I am new to NPM and ran an initial scan.  All of my Red Hat servers show up under the "unknown" devices.  How do I enable snmp on a Red Hat server so the NPM can gather the data from these servers?

1. Installation : 

Run command yum install net-snmp-utils. It should install net-snmp as a dependency

 

2. Configure : 

Backup the snmpd config file.  mv /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.org

Create a new config file.  vi /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

rocommunity  public

syslocation  "Your location"

syscontact  <your email>

Start the snmpd service :  /etc/init.d/snmpd start

Do a snmpwalk to make sure it is working :  snmpwalk -v 1 -c public -O e 127.0.0.1

Make sure snmpd starts next time you restart your machine :  chkconfig snmpd on

Your Linux box will show up as net-snmp rather than as Linux or the dreaded UNKNOWN.
