Reconfiguring the SNMP Native Agent

If your SNMP daemon is running on AIX, it supports SMUX. For this reason, you do not need to install a master agent. However, you do need to change the AIX SNMP daemon configuration.

AIX uses several configuration files to screen its communications. One of the file, snmpd.conf, needs to be changed so that the SNMP daemon accepts the incoming messages from the SMUX subagent. For more information, see the online manual page for snmpd.conf. You need to add a line to define each subagent.

For example, you might add this line to the snmpd.conf:

smux ““ IP_address net_mask

IP_address is the IP address of the host the subagent is running on, and net_mask is the network mask of that host.

Note –

Do not use the loopback address, use the real IP address instead.
