Hi,

I wish to configure and start the SNMP agent on SUN Solaris 8 (Installed on SUN SPARC Ultra 1) in order to monitor it with a network monitoring tool.

I tried searching the sun website but got some documentation that i could not comprehend.

Please can some tell me how to do it or suggest a link that explains how to do so.

( I am a newbie to Solaris. )

Thanks,
Ranjit

Hi,

Yes this thread can end and you can split up the points between the two. Actually i did go through the links but they did not help me much and then soon after i was working on another project. Hence i did not get a chance to further try out anything.

Thanks
