HP SNMP agents and Ubuntu

This will allow you to monitor HP hardware, i.e. RAID controller, degraded disk etc. This was done on Ubuntu 10.04


wget http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/bootstrap.sh
chmod +x bootstrap.sh
./bootstrap.sh -r ProLiantSupportPack (this adds the HP repo to apt's sources)
wget http://downloads.linux.hp.com/SDR/downloads/ProLiantSupportPack/GPG-KEY-ProLiantSupportPack
apt-key add GPG-KEY-ProLiantSupportPack
aptitude update
apt-get install hp-snmp-agents


apt-get install net-snmp (or apt-get install snmp for later versions)


/sbin/hpsnmpconfig - Follow the prompts

nano /etc/default/snmpd

#modify this line, replacing x.x.x.x with your public facing IP if needed

SNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -g snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/snmpd.pid 127.0.0.1 x.x.x.x'

##########################################

Restart snmp
/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

Start the agents!
/etc/init.d/hp-snmp-agents start

Test with
snmpwalk -v 1 -c rocom localhost 1.3.6.1.4.1.232
