enable snmp on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 running ERP [12.1.2]

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 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, allow this firewall rule,

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp s -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-

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

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

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.

Any idea which ISO has the files for net-snmp-libs-
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.
