cannot start SNMP
Env: Netview/6000, SNMP.
Desc: We have upgraded memory in the machine from 32 to 64 MB.
After this we have problems starting snmp. We start
snmp with the command 'startsrc -s snmp', snmp runs for
5 minutes and then dies.
the error message we receive is:
Cannot bind snmp port. Address already in use
FATAL: init_io failed, address already in use
Action: We have told you to check whether there are other
daemons which are using ports 161 and 162. You are
telling us that there are none. We have told you to
shut down the machine and watch for the snmp startup
or error messages on the machine restart. You are telling
us that snmp was started successfully.
You have told us that you have Optivity software installed
on the machine. There has been a problem with Optivity.
During the installation of Optivity, the files
/usr/OV/lrf/pmd.lrf and /usr/OV/lrf/trapd_dm.lrf are
updated. As a result of it, it makes some daemons listen
on the same port as SNMP.
SE started killing the processes and then issuing the netstat -a command
to see when the ports were released.
The two processes were:
/usr/lnms/bin/trap_server -n - opened udp-based snmp port (162)
/usr/lnms/bin/superagent - opened udp-based snmp port (161)
Both of these processes were part of Optivity software. SE will remove
Optivity and contact Synoptics on debugging issues.
