snmpd modification problem

Hi Gurus,

I am relatively new in AIX.
I have a problem in modifying the community string in snmpd.
I have edited the /etc/snmpd.conf file and changed the default community name 'public' to new one (P@@$w0rd).
When I tried to query my aix server with the new string , it is not giving any response. But when tried with the community string public, it responds.
I killed the snmpd and snmpmibd daemons , and restarted both.
Still it is not responding with new string.

Can anybody help to resolve this..... the OS version 5.2

With thanks in advance

Ajith.

Helo.
Take into account that in AIX, the default SNMP version used is 3 (which allows other sorts of auth). You have to change to version 1 of SNMP for those changes to take effect.
To do this, give:
Code:
snmpv3_ssw -1

as root.

I hope this helps.

Regards.
