Starting the SNMP agent

You can start BMC Remedy SNMP Agent in any of the following ways:

  • Use armonitor:
    • If you configured SNMP during installation, armonitor starts the SNMP agent automatically after installation is complete.
    • If the SNMP agent process is terminated, armonitor restarts the SNMP agent.
  • Use the following command:
    arsnmpd -c  <pathToarsnmpdConfigurationFile>
     udp: <portNumber>
    Ensure that:
    • The argument to the -c option is the path to the arsnmpd configuration file, not to the snmpd file.
    • The argument to udp is a port number not currently in use by another SNMP agent or any other process.
      For example, for UNIX:
      arsnmpd -c /user/ar/arsystem/conf/arsnmpd.conf udp:8161
  • Invoke the agent during BMC Remedy AR System startup, using the Services panel (on Windows) or the arsystem shell script (on UNIX)
