apt-get -y install snmpd


yum -y install net-snmp net-snmp-utils

Once the installation is complete, make a copy of your original file and proceed with the configuration.

vim /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

Specify the listening interface of server for the snmp service.

Enter the community name and SGBox ip address.

Save changes and restart the SNMP service.


service snmpd restart


service snmpd restart
