SNMP v2 on AIX 6.1

Hello Admins,

We need to configure and setup snmp v2 on AIX 6.1 clients.

I don't find snmp v2 related files on AIX servers
. I see there is snmpdv3.conf and v3 installed.

Where can I get snmpdv2 for AIX?

Thanks in advance.

The snmpd is a link to either the snmpdv1 or the snmpdv3 binary, containing the respective daemons. You find the snmpdv3 on the expansion pack CD.

The snmpdv3 server supports SNMP protocols according to RFC 1157 (SNMP v1), RFC 1905 (v2) and RFC 2572 (v3). Note that you may need to start snmpmibd too (if you want to use the "distributed protocol interface", DPI (RFC1592)).

I hope this helps.

So does it mean I have to use either snmpdv1 or snmpdv3 on AIX?

And no snmpdv2 ?

I don't understand why you still have that question.

Thanks for all replies. It helps me to figure out.

It has been a long long time, but from memory of about 10 years ago, the old snmp daemon supported v1 and v2 - but nearly noone ever used the snmpv2 features.
So - although it may look, due to the names of the daemons, as if snmpv2 was skipped, support for snmpv2 has actually been available since 1996 (AIX 4.1).

Good that you can work with snmpdv3 daemon. I need to learn the details of configuration as well. (I knew it very well back when I was working Netview - ancient history :-)
