We have a Solarwinds Orion installed on windows server and we want to
monitor HP-UX 11.11 Boxes using solarwinds.
By default the version of snmp which is present in hp-ux does not
support solarwinds.
For that we need to installed net-snmp.I want to retrive data from
hp-ux boxes . So in that sense hp-ux become client of solarwinds(windows

Now, if you can clarify which will be the best configuration for
net-snmp that would be great.
I know what is our snmp community string and ip address and all the
If we will run snmpconf or snmpconf -g basic_setup it is asking so many

If you guys know that issue please clarify.

Can you please clarify exactly what you wish to run on the HP-UX
Your message to SolarWinds seems to imply that you're talking about how
to configure the Net-SNMP agent on HP kit, but your query above is
talking about the Net-SNMP "client".
Which is correct?

If you're talking about the Net-SNMP agent (i.e. retrieving information
from the HP-UX box), then you should be looking at snmpd.conf.

But quite honestly, the simplest way to get this working is not to use
"snmpconf" at all. Instead, create an snmpd.conf file containing
*just* the line

rocommunity public

You might want to change the community string, or restrict the
accessible views once you've got things working. But to start with, I'd
begin with this configuration.

If you're not talking about retrieving information from the HP-UX box,
then you'll need to give some more detail about exactly what you are
trying to do.
