snmpd configuration file purpose

The snmpd configuration file can contain the following information:

  • engineBoots
  • engineID

If an snmpd configuration file does not exist, you must create one in the CONF directory of your AR System installation. In this case, engineBoots and engineID are added to the snmpd file when BMC Remedy SNMP Agent starts.

In the snmpd file, you enter the configuration directives required to fully define a user account. When adding information to this file, do not alter the lines corresponding to engineBoots and engineID (if they are present).

For each user account defined in the arsnmpd file (see rwuser and rouser directive information in Defining users by access level), you must include a corresponding createUser directive to the snmpd file as follows:


createUser  <userName>
 MD5  <authenticationPassword>
 DES  <privatePassword>

Note

Passwords must be at least eight characters long.



Using this directive, you can define the authentication password and privacy password used by the user account (userName).

Note

In SNMP v3, the authentication password that the user supplies to BMC Remedy SNMP Agent must be encrypted.



The following examples show how directives can be used:

  • If you defined a user in the arsnmpd file as having read-write permissions and using authentication and no privacy:
    
    rwuser user1 auth
    The following line is required in the snmpd file:
    createUser user1 MD5 mypassword
  • If you defined a user in the arsnmpd file as using privacy:
    
    rwuser user1 priv
    The following line is required in the snmpd file:
    createUser user1 MD5 mypassword DES privatepassword
  • If you defined a user in the arsnmpd file as using no authentication and no privacy:
    rwuser user1 noauth
    The following line is required in the snmpd file:
    createUser user1
