Description dbodnarc 2017-06-23 10:16:49 EDT
Description of problem:
man snmp_config doesn't contain information for the following options:

and is pointing to option `include` which doesn't look to be supported:
/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf: line XX: Warning: Ambiguous token 'include' - use 'includeSearch' (or 'includeFile') instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
man snmp_config

Actual results:
       It is possible to include other configuration files for processing during normal configuration file processing.:

              # include site specific config
              include site.conf

       This will search every directory in the configuration path for files
       named site.conf, and will process those files before returning to the
       processing of the original file. Note that if '.conf' is omitted,
       it will be appended. That is, all configuration files must end
       in '.conf'.

Expected results:
Description of the supported options:

Additional info:
man snmp_config in RHEL6 contains information regarding includeFile and includeDir
