Description Larry Adams 2017-08-11 08:27:02 EDT
Description of problem:

It appears that snmpd is not built with the UPD6 bidings.

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


How reproducible:

Very easy, always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit the snmpd.conf file, empty it and then add two lines:

rocommunity public
rocommunity6 public

2. Restart snmpd using 'systemctl restart snmpd'
3. Run netstat -an | grep 161

Actual results:

You see udp port 161 listening to, but no udp6 listening on :::0

Expected results:

Both udp6 and udp ports listening on all IP's.

Additional info:

That's it.

I'm going to close this.  It was reported that you must add the following to the Net-SNMP snmpd.conf file:

agentaddress udp:161,udp6:161

This was not the case in earlier versions of Net-SNMP.  So, though it's a behavior change, it's now working.  So, I'll close this.
