CRM - 1772908 - Can't get cluster-snmp (fully) working
Last modified: 2009-04-16 16:27:31 EDT
Cloned this one from the net-snmp defect. They can't get a fix for this into
rhel4.6, but sounds like there is a workaround to fix in cluster-snmp packages.
We need to fix this for cluster 4.6.
Created attachment 233971 [details]
idea of the fix
I am net-snmp maintainer and I found that net-snmp in RHEL4 is really old and
does not support some features of newer releases. In this bug, net-snmp expects
it receives INTEGER32 values as long*. New net-snmp can handle both int* and
long*. I cannot fix it in 4.6 (it's too late), I'll try to fix it in RHEL 4.7,
so if you want 4.6 cluster working, you must make a workaround.
So, you must go through your net-snmp module and check, if you return integer
values as long, not as int. Example patch is attached. You can easily check the
correctness of your code by configuring net-snmp to use the module and running
on x86_64 cluster:
snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost REDHAT-CLUSTER-MIB::RedHatCluster
You should see all the values you support and there should be no "Error
building ASN.1" in /var/log/messages. Important is x86_64 architecture here -
the bug is not reproduceable on i386, where int and long have the same size.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
So - I have this fix in and ready to test it. I tried running your snmpwalk
command, and I got a 'command not found'. Which package is it in? Here are the
snmp pkgs installed on the system I am testing with:
rpm -qa |grep snmp
snmpwalk is in net-snmp-utils package
