Description Daniel McNamara 2008-02-03 23:28:08 EST
Description of problem:

Unlike most Red Hat/Fedora packaged services, the snmpd daemon options are not
configured within sysconfig configuration file. This isn't an issue as such but
for consistency it should be migrated to one.

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


How reproducible:

See full desc below

Additional info:

At present the snmpd init file contains:

if [ -e /etc/snmp/snmpd.options ]; then
  . /etc/snmp/snmpd.options
   OPTIONS="-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -p /var/run/snmpd.pid -a"

I propose that instead of using /etc/snmp/snmpd.options we create a
/etc/sysconfig/snmpd file that by default contains the OPTIONS above.

This is a very minor change to the package set and brings a consistent location
for daemon configuration options into Fedora packaged services.

Good point, I'll do it
