tadm start-snmp-subagent common_options [--instance-home=instance_home] [--agentx] (node_host)*


Use this command to start the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) subagent.


The SNMP subagent does not require the administration server to be in the running mode.


For information about common_options, run the help command.


Indicates the location where the server instances can be found. You must specify a valid installation location. When an --instance-home is specified, the command starts the SNMP subagent locally. When an --instance-home is not specified, the command does not start the SNMP subagent locally, but tries to connect to the administration server.


Specifies whether the SNMP subagent to run as subagent using the agentx protocol. If the SNMP subagent runs as agentx, the SNMP master agent must be up and running.


While running as an agentx protocol, the master agent (snmpd) needs to be configured to listen to the agentx protocol and must open the path mentioned in admin-server/config/snmpagt.conf. Make sure that the OTD SNMP has the required permissions to the agentx protocol.



Specify the name of the node running on the configuration.


To start the SNMP subagent on one or more nodes:

tadm start-snmp-subagent --user=admin

To start the SNMP subagent locally on a node:

tadm start-snmp-subagent --instance-home=/home/otd
