Hy guys, I installed net-snmp-5.7_3 on several FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE machines without any problem, but, when I try to start it with default config /usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf (copy by snmpd.conf.sample) it gave me the following error:

Code:

There are no other snmpd.conf anywhere on the paths that it looking for. If I start it from [cmd=]/usr/local/etc/rc.d/snmpd start[/cmd] it gave me the following error:

You probably made a typo or something in your snmpd.conf.

I see no problems here. What do you have in /etc/rc.conf regarding net-snmp?

Isn't it already running? It looks like it's trying to add stuff that's already there.

ps -aux | grep snmpd

There is nothing running at all.

Code:

Ah.. I couldn't figure it out myself. So I just installed it and started playing with it.

Remove your /usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf and run the following command:
# snmpconf -g basic_setup

Answer the questions and it'll generate a proper snmpd.conf. Copy that file to /usr/local/share/snmp/. It should start properly now.

Hi SirDice,

Ok, I'll try this right now.

Thx.

Hi Dir Dice,

I do all the steps on snmpconf, that generate the following snmpd.conf:

Code:
agentAddress  udp:161
view   systemonly  included   .1.3.6.1.2.1.1
view   systemonly  included   .1.3.6.1.2.1.25.1
rocommunity xxx  default
syslocation  "Rack de TI"
syscontact  "TI <xxx@xx.xx.xx>"
trap2sink    localhost xxx
iquerySecName   internalUser
rouser          internalUser
defaultMonitors          yes
linkUpDownNotifications  yes
proc  mountd
proc  ntalkd    4
proc  sendmail 10 1
disk  / 10000
disk  /var 5%
disk  includeAllDisks 10%
load  12 10 5
So I try to start snmp service, but still get the error:

Code:
Starting snmpd.

I try to find where could be another snmpd.conf file that could be generating that problem:

Code:
find / -name snmpd.conf
/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf
/usr/src/release/picobsd/floppy.tree/etc/snmpd.conf
/usr/home/suporte/snmpd.conf
/var/net-snmp/snmpd.conf
The snmp daemon looks for snmpd.conf on /usr/local/share/snmp/ so those above doesn't make any difference, right?

Thank you.

Start # snmpconfig -g basic_config and don't import any snmpd.conf files it might find. Start with a clean slate.

Hi Sir Dice,

I do not import anything, i just search for another snmpd.conf.

My snmpd.conf is that one created by # snmpconfig -g basic_config as you told me.

Thank you.

Made a typo in my last post..

Code:
root@molly:~#snmpconf -g basic_setup

The following installed configuration files were found:

   1:  ./snmpd.conf

Would you like me to read them in?  Their content will be merged with the
output files created by this session.

The following files were created:

  snmpd.conf

These files should be moved to /usr/local/share/snmp if you
want them used by everyone on the system.  In the future, if you add
the -i option to the command line I'll copy them there automatically for you.

Or, if you want them for your personal use only, copy them to
/root/.snmp .  In the future, if you add the -p option to the
command line I'll copy them there automatically for you.

Thank you SirDice.

Following your steps, I can make it work!

Thank you so much for the help.

P.S: How do I set this thread as SOLVED?

Thank you again.

Following this to the letter worked like a charm.

Now wouldn't it be nice if the default package install included a working snmpd.conf file.
Code:
godzilla# cp snmpd.conf /usr/local/share/snmp/
godzilla# service snmpd start
Starting snmpd.
godzilla# cd /var/log/
godzilla# cat snmpd.log
NET-SNMP version 5.7.1
godzilla#

Submit a bug report, or it will likely be waiting there to find again the next time.
