we have Cisco Prime 22.214.171.124 installed and running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga).
We want to poll snmp information about underlaying Red Hat server state and status. I have installed net-snmp packages (version 5.7.1). I tried to enable snmpd with simplest configuration, however it would not start. When I looked into the matter, I found out that port 161 is being used for IPv6 by some ANA (prime) java app:
whatever way I tried to start snpmd (even with specifying IPv4 address) it fails. I do not want to kill off any java processes knowing that they are obviously being some Prime processes (look above). I cannot find any reservations for port 161 on IPv4, however any combination of attempts fails.
I am looking for ways to handle this correctly. I can start snmpd on any other port (i.e. 30161 or whatever) but I am not aware that Prime can poll from non-default listening port. Also, I need to enable it on the non-loopback address, so we can poll Unit's OS health from Server and vice versa.
Does anyone have any ideas / suggestions how to handle this well? Should I kill off java or should I try to fix Prime to poll from non-default ports?
