SNMP Extend with Variable as Args

SNMP Extend with Variable as Args

SNMP Extend with Variable as Args

Hi all,

I'm using SNMP extend to run a script on remote machines.
I found it worked perfectly for a script which needs no args on calling.
I tried to call a script using static args and it worked as good as the previous one.
But when I tried to call a script which args is a variable, it didn't work.
This is the conf for this extend:


extend jobcheck /home/ampra2/jobcheck $JOB

I  have also tried using another solution, by using snmpset on the nsExtendArgs, but it gave me no Access to do so:


[ampra2@east-lin ~]$ snmpset -v2c -c public $node NET-SNMP-EXTEND-MIB::nsExtendArgs s $JOB
Error in packet.
Reason: noAccess
Failed object: NET-SNMP-EXTEND-MIB::nsExtendArgs
Any idea how to solve this problem?


RE: SNMP Extend with Variable as Args

I would guess the v2c public does not have write access, hence the noacccess error.

You could try using private it may work or configuring your agent to allow public sets.
