Hi All,

I've been asked to enable SNMP on our Oracle ERP server.  It runs on the Oracle version of Redhat.


I need to add a community string called public and allow 10.10.50.3 to be able to read SNMP.


I have SSH root access.


Thanks in adv

Check if SNMP is installed first -
service snmpd status

If not, yum install net-snmp

To only allow 10.10.50.3, allow this firewall rule,

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp s 10.10.50.3/subnet -m udp --dport 161 -j ACCEPT

SNMP is not installed and we aren't allowed YUM.

Currently installed snmp libs package is net-snmp-libs-5.3.2.2-9.el5_5.1

Any idea where i can find the correct packages, as the ones on the install CD are an older version and wont install?

I would suggest you download the ISO from Oracle. You only need an account to download the ISO for free. Once downloaded you may copy the packages and install appropriately.

I have the ISO we used to install Linux, but the package is a different version to the one installed.  So Oracle ERP must have updated it.

Your question was to enable snmp on your server. Do you also want to update it?
What is the output for "rpm -qa | grep net-snmp"

ended up raising a support call with Oracle so they could provide it.
