Thanks TB0ne for your quick response,
Actually I am have received custom snmp string which needs to be configured on Servers for snmp. requirement was for only adding custom snmp string and starting snmp service So I was having query that only adding custom string and starting service snmp will work? or any other configuration needs to be done to work snmp string?
If you mean a custom ro/rw community string, then yes. Change it, restart snmpd, and you're done. You should also try reading the man pages for such things, or check Google.
I have RHL Enterprise 4 (nahant update 8) recently installed on a Dell Power Edge server (no internet connection),
and I also need enabling (installing) SNMP.
I read a lot about configuration of SNMP, but not much about the right
prerequisites of installing SNMP (packages I need, and other Linux utilities to make the packages installed right.)
As an example, do i need to install Yum, what to check else (as i believe this is a "poor" version of Linux).
I would really appreciate some help even some good links with clear instructions as this is a production server, I dont have so much experience and i wanted to check what i need.
