I manage a box running HP-UX B.11.31 U ia64.

I am new to Unix and I have not been able to find a step by step guide for installing snmp on HP-UX 11.31.

Googling has suggested that I need to download net-snmp from http://net-snmp.sourceforge.net/download.html but I'm not sure whether to download source or binaries.  In either case, I see multiple versions and files for each choice.

How do I know which file to download?  Once downloaded,  what do I do next?  

Thanks.

SNMP is included in all HP-UX distributions.  Check your startup files to verify snmpd is set to start at bootup.

I have edited the snmpd.conf to set the get-community-name to the desired string and the line is not commented out.


[root@XXX]# ps -ef | grep snmpd
    root  1544     1  0  May  4  ?         0:00 /usr/lbin/cmsnmpd
    root  1449     1  0  May  4  ?         0:00 /usr/sbin/snmpdm
    root 12158 29874  0 18:16:37 pts/0     0:00 grep snmpd


I am not able to add host using the string to my management system.

Also, how do I make sure the service starts on reboot?

I was able to get the snmp agent included with HPUX to work but it doesn't appear to report cpu, memory, and storage information.  Any tips for how to poll this information?

The managment station MIB will only display what the MIB supports.  I have installed Openview as the management app and it read the information fine.  Check for an updated MIB from the provider of your management station software.
