Description Brian Reichert 2006-06-16 13:53:41 EDT
Description of problem:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/snmptrapd does not honor options set in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options

More specifically, after selectively reading the contents of the
/etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options file (if present), /etc/rc.d/init.d/snmptrapd goes
on to hard-code a list or options for snmptrapd.  This lies in questions that do

if [ -e /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options ]; then
  . /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options
   OPTIONS="-Lsd -p /var/run/snmptrapd.pid"

OPTIONS="-Lsd -p /var/run/snmptrapd.pid"

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Attempt to set any options in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options (for example '-d')
2.  Restart snmptrapd: 'service snmptrapd restart'
3.  Observe via 'ps' or otherwise that the added options are not in use.
Actual results:

options set in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options are ignored

Expected results:

options set in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.options are honored

Typo in my description, sorry.  The phrase 'This lies in questions' should have
been 'The lines in question'.
