I've installed LEDE (OpenWrt SNAPSHOT r18250-6832271ee7 / LuCI Master git-21.327.65538-e982c05) on my BT Homehub 5A router and now trying to configure snmp.
I've installed the package snmpd and can do a snmpwalk from a remote system using the defaults. So I know snmp is at least working.
The issue I am facing is if I change any of the contents in
/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf and then restart the snmpd daemon the file is set back to the defaults.
If I stop snmpd the file in the symbolic link also dissapears.
root@bt_hh5a:~# cd /etc/snmp/ root@bt_hh5a:/etc/snmp# ls -la drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 232 Dec 1 20:50 . drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1032 Dec 1 20:50 .. lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Dec 1 20:50 snmpd.conf -> /var/run/snmpd.conf root@bt_hh5a:/etc/snmp# ls /var/run/s* ls: /var/run/s*: No such file or directory
So I'm guessing the file
/etc/snmp/snmpd.conf is not the one to edit.
root@bt_hh5a:/etc/snmp# /etc/init.d/snmpd start root@bt_hh5a:/etc/snmp# ls /var/run/s* /var/run/snmpd.conf
All the docs I've found online say to edit this file.
Any ideas on which file I should be using?
