How to Install required snmp rpms offline, for external NMS monitoring of Airwave
Requirement:

Most of the customers want to monitor Airwave from an external NMS, for doing that Airwave will need, net-snmp rpms.  if the Airwave server do not have internet connectivity or if it is behind a firewall, it will be really tough to download the required rpms as they may run into dependency issues.

 

This article describes what packages, need to be downloaded to upload it on Airwave and in what format they can be installed offline.



Solution:

We need to do download the rpms from the below location or any other similar rpm download location:

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=net-snmp

lm_sensors-libs-3.1.1-17.el6.x86_64.rpm

net-snmp-5.5-54.el6_7.1.x86_64.rpm

net-snmp-libs-5.5-54.el6_7.1.x86_64.rpm

[RPM versions may differ from CentOS version we are using]

These are the three files needed to have the snmpd service to run, we could download these files and upload to any location on the Airwave, for example in /tmp, using winscp or any other similar tool.

 

 

 

 

 

 



Configuration:

Once the files are uploaded to /tmp, we could execute the below commands from the same location to install those rpms:

 

# cd /tmp

# rpm -Uvh lm_sensors-libs-3.1.1-17.el6.x86_64.rpm

# rpm -Uvh net-snmp-5.5-54.el6_7.1.x86_64.rpm net-snmp-libs-5.5-54.el6_7.1.x86_64.rpm



Verification

 

once installed.

 

# service snmpd start

It should start the process, if it is failing with symbolic link issues, we could use this KB below to address that issue:
