Disable snmpd for good

Hi everyone, I am struggling with something that I thought it would be really easy. I want to disable snmpd, but every time y reboot my server, it starts again. I've commented it out on the rc.tcpip file, but still it starts automatically.

# Start up the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) daemon
#start /usr/sbin/snmpd "$src_running"

I've also commented it out the following:

# Start up the hostmibd daemon
#start /usr/sbin/hostmibd "$src_running"

# Start up the snmpmibd daemon
#start /usr/sbin/snmpmibd "$src_running"

# Start up the aixmibd daemon
#start /usr/sbin/aixmibd "$src_running"

In fact, the only thing that isn't commented out is this:

# Start up socket-based daemons
start /usr/sbin/inetd "$src_running"

This is my inetd.conf file:

I will have to look for doing it "manually", give me a moment, to a day (as I have a plane to catch shortly).

1) Use smitty otherserv to turn it off

Ulimately, it will do/tell you (I found it already!) to use this command.
# /usr/sbin/chrctcp -S -d snmpd

However, if you are hardening AIX, a much easier way is to use aix security expert - aixpert.
# aixpert -l h probably does more than you want.
# aixpert -l m is a good basic starting point.

You can do them in either order, aixpert knows what to do. FYI you can also create a custom XML file (once you understand better whet you want) to make something different.

To save a lot of typing - I recommend reading the man page and/or Security.pdf (to be found at/via AIX InfoCenter).

I've run chrctcp, and customized the high level security profile and applied it. In fact, I've noticed that the snmpd service was running because I'm using Real time Compliance, to check that my configurations in the AIXpert profile are in place. My only guess is that I'm running a process/service that starts the snmpd service.

I would run chmod 0 on the actual programs:
# ls -l /usr/sbin/snmpd*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root system      9 Oct 18 18:59 /usr/sbin/snmpd -> snmpdv3ne
-rwxr-x--- 1 root system 363992 Oct  2 21:51 /usr/sbin/snmpd64v1
-rwxr-x--- 1 root system 335192 Oct  2 21:52 /usr/sbin/snmpdv1
-rwxr-x--- 1 root system 336148 Nov 16  2011 /usr/sbin/snmpdv3ne

better would be to customize aixpert to use

to do that for you.

p.s., you could move the originals away and write a script/program to tell you who/what is trying to start it. I would expect it to be something super-user powered.

As you have spoken about RBAC check that noone has authorization to start it anyway.

I've done this, snmp won't start now and so far anything is broken Smilie

Indeed, no user has authorization to start this.
