SNMP services

Hello,

Can anyone help me by telling how to open port 161 in solaris 10? I have added it in /etc/services but it is not working. I checked by telneting but I could not connect to that server on the port 161. I am trying to communicate using snmp services.

check with "svcs -a | grep -i snmp" if the snmp service is running.

I checked by running this command:

#svcs -a | grep -i snmp
# offline 17:16:02 svc:/application/management/snmpdx:default

also I checked with

# ps -eaf | grep snmp and got this
# root 528 1 0 17:16:19 ? 0:46 /usr/sfw/sbin/snmpd

What does this mean? The first result shows as offline and the second one seems to indicate that snmp is running? am new to solaris pls help Smilie

Thanks in advance...

Hello,

Thanks for that suggestion, however am little sceptic if i will not have both of them running after I stop this running service. I have people above me whom I have to answer if anything goes wrong...that is the problem, if this was a test machine I could have done all the testing on it...Smilie

How about not killing the current snmp process and enableing the service? Then do a ps -ef | grep snmp

Then show us what you have. After enabling the service please try to do an SNMPwalk to that host from a different machine.

Let me know what you get.
