Install Prerequisites (skip that in case of Virtual Appliance)

  • AIX
    Download Net-SNMP packages and install them.
    Do not use the latest packages for AIX, it does not work, use net-snmp-! It will not work with AIX standard OS cmd /usr/sbin/snmptrap!
    # umask 0022
    # rpm -Uvh net-snmp- net-snmp-utils- net-snmp-perl-
    Make sure
    • you use PERL=/opt/freeware/bin/perl in etc/stor2rrd.cfg
    • PERL5LIB in etc/stor2rrd.cfg contains /opt/freeware/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/ppc-thread-multi path
  • Linux
    Follow this to get installed SNMP support in the tool on RHEL8 and CentOS8.
    # umask 0022
    # yum install net-snmp
    # yum install net-snmp-utils
    # yum install net-snmp-perl
  • Linux Debian/Ubuntu
    % umask 0022
    % apt-get install snmp libsnmp-perl snmp-mibs-downloader
    If apt-get does not find snmp-mibs-downloader package then enable contrib and non-free repositories.
