RE: roblems with AVC in setting up snmpd



Ok, I am not totally sure what the error is saying, but I can tell you
that it is an SELinux error.

I think (and this is the part I am unsure about), snmpd is trying access
a file with the context of system_u:object_r:tmp_t and it needs to have
root:system_r:snmpd_t. To see a file's context use the ls -Z, and to
change it use chcon.
Or and (I don't recommend this) you could disable SELinux by changing
SELINUX=targeted to disabled or permissive in the /etc/selinux/config

Subject: roblems with AVC in setting up snmpd


Hi all,

I think this is just a configuration/policy issue and i would appreciate
any advice you can send my way.  I am trying to play around with the
snmpd daemon on my machine to set up some network monitoring.  In doing
this, i have configured the sndmpd.conf file using the 'snmpconf' tool
and then i started the agent: 

service snmpd start

I query the agent with snmpwalk and i get back some results but in the
message log for the snmp machine with snmpd, i see the message log
outputting many log lines dealing with AVC permission issues.  Following
is a snippet of the logs that I am seeing :
