Post can't enable snmp

hello solarisq,

I am having some difficulty enabling the snmp service on a solaris 10 sparc box:

[dbmon01-dc2:~] root% svcs -a | grep snmp
offline        Apr_13   svc:/application/management/snmpdx:default

[dbmon01-dc2:~] root% svcadm enable svc:/application/management/snmpdx:default

[dbmon01-dc2:~] root% svcs -a | grep snmp
offline        Apr_13   svc:/application/management/snmpdx:default
This is the machine info:

[dbmon01-dc2:~] root% uname -a
SunOS dbmon01-dc2 5.10 Generic_142900-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
I was hoping I could ask your advice on how to resolve this issue.

I would take a look at /var/svc/manifest (should be under application/management/*snmp*) - then from that get whatever script it is using inside of /lib/svc/method to see how it is trying to start it up. Hopefully you can figure out what is going on from there.


snmp, solaris10
