To enable the monitoring of detailed SNMP information using the Virtualization Manager appliance on Linux OS, install and configure the net-snmp package.

 

Warning: While you can install and configure third-party packages for use with Virtualization Manager, SolarWinds does not provide support for any issues in connection with the configuration of third-party components.

 

  1. Connect to the Virtual Appliance: open the command line, and type SSH.
  2. Log in as admin/admin.
  3. Enter the following commands to install the net-snmp package:
    • sudo su
    • yum install net-snmp-utils
  4. Enter the following command to open and edit the snmpd.conf file:
    • vi /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.
  5. Replace the following lines in the snmpd.conf file:
    Original line Replace with
    • com2sec notConfigUser  default       public
    • com2sec local localhost           public
    • com2sec mynetwork Your_IP/Netmask      public
    • group notConfigGroup v1 notConfigUser
    • group notConfigGroup v2c notConfigUser
    • group MyRWGroup v1         local
    • group MyRWGroup v2c       local
    • group MyRWGroup usm      local
    • group MyROGroup v1         mynetwork
    • group MyROGroup v2c        mynetwork

    • syslocation Unknown (edit /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf)
    • syscontact Root (configure /etc/snmp/snmp.local.conf)
    • syslocation Linux (RH3_UP2), Home Linux Router.

    (Supply the appropriate information for syslocation.)

  6. Start your SNMP server and test it:
    • Use the following command to make sure snmpd always starts when Linux starts:
      • # chkconfig snmpd on
    • Use the following command to start the server:
      • # /etc/init.d/snmpd start
    • Use the following command to restart the server if the configuration file snmpd.conf is modified:
      • # /etc/init.d/snmpd restart
