Using the documented net-snmp-config command to create an SNMP user gives error "-bash: net-snmp-config: command not found"
Broadcom API Gateway 10 - SNMP Monitor implementation
In most recent version of Gateway, net-snmp-config command is deprecated due changes in the SNMP RPM. Hence we will use net-snmp-create-v3-user instead.
For standard user # net-snmp-create-v3-user [-ro] [-A SHA|MD5] [-a authpass] [username]
For encrypted user (recommended) # net-snmp-create-v3-user [-ro] [-A SHA|MD5] [-a authpass] [-x privpass] [-X DES|AES] [username]
Before to run above command, we have to completely stop SNMP daemon from running. In the Gateway Appliance usually there are two instances of snmpd up and running:
Stop both of them with the following command:
# service snmpd stop
# /opt/nfast/scripts/init.d/ncsnmpd stop
Then create the user with one of the two methods described above, for example:
# net-snmp-create-v3-user -ro -A SHA -a 'Tzw~^[V}U)qSq!UX' -x 'swXdwPR/|}#&@P&' -X AES128 testuser
If successful, the output should show something like this:
Then restart the snmp daemon accordingly:
# service snmpd start
# /opt/nfast/scripts/init.d/ncsnmpd start
