How come I cannot find a simple procedure for installing and configuring net-snmp


I have searched and searched the i-net, and cannot find a simple procedure for installing net-snmp. All of the articles I'm finding read 'install net-snmp', but don't supply the steps to fully install and configure it properly.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Frustrated in Maryland...

First things first: what distro are you using?

Depends on what you're running. As root, try:

apt-get install net-snmp (if you're running something based on debian)
yum install net-snmp (if you're running a recent Red Hat)

If those don't work, mention your distro.

Tinkster - RHEL 4.6

Cyclepathology - The yum command you gave me is currently running. Seems to be taking a tad long:

[root@itmtest /]# /etc/log.d/scripts/services/yum install net-snmp

It hasn't returned to the prompt as of yet. My linux distro is RHEL 4.6

So if yum is still running ... is the machine in question hooked up
to the net, and configured for online repositories?

Tinkster- Then that would be the issue. This machine is a VM running in an isolated network. I thought it would install from the current rpm that is on the server.

If you have an rpm handy all you need to do is

rpm -Uvh /path/to/net-snmp*rpm
