Hi,
I'm running SLES 11 SP2 on a HP DL585. Quite frequently I have to restart SNMPD because for some reason, the HP MIBs just dissappear.
I have psp-9.10.sles11.x86_64 installed.

Does anybody have a solution for this?


Thank you.
Lloyd

Hi
So is the snmpd daemon stopping? Have you looked through the logs
in /var/log?

When you say restart the daemon, I'm assuming on this device?

Nope, snmpd doesn't stop running.
I've only looked at the snmpd logs for the moment. Didn't realize there were also logs on hp-health, hp-snmp-agents in /var/logs.
Will check those logs again next time the HP MIBs disappear.

Yes

We have exactly the same problem.

Any news about this?

None so far, I have been unable to see anything which may indicate a problem in the hp-* and snmp logs.
In addition it is difficult to determine which part of SNMP and or HP/SNMP is failing.

What kind of HP hardware are you running ?

I have seen a few updates on some HP SNMP packages. But I would like to understand what is happening instead of blindly installing update HP/SNMP packages.

It would be nice to have a HP/SuSE opinion on this?

Open up a case/SR then, both at HP and at SUSE.
