Installing SNMP on CentOS

Once again I am documenting this here for my own purposes. I tend to find little caveats like this but loose them by the next time I need them. So I’m documenting how to install SNMP on a CentOS box. So far I’ve tried this on several physical and will be trying it on some vmware and xen virtual boxes next. After do you this you need to start the service ans set it to load at root.

yum install net-snmp
yum install net-snmp-utils

snmpconf -i -g basic_setup

service snmpd start
chkconfig --add snmpd
