snmpconf - creates and modifies SNMP configuration files


   snmpconf [OPTIONS] [fileToCreate]

   Start with:
          snmpconf -g basic_setup

   Or even just:


   snmpconf  is  a  simple Perl script that walks you through setting up a
   configuration file step by step.  It should be fairly straight  forward
   to use.  Merely run it and answer its questions.

   In  its  default  mode  of  operation,  it  prompts the user with menus
   showing sections of the various configuration  files  it  knows  about.
   When  the  user  selects  a section, a sub-menu is shown listing of the
   descriptions of the tokens that can be created in that section.  When a
   description  is  selected,  the  user  is  prompted with questions that
   construct the configuration line in question.

   Finally, when the user quits the program any configuration  files  that
   have  been  edited  by the user are saved to the local directory, fully

   A particularly useful option is the  -g  switch,  which  walks  a  user
   through a specific set of configuration questions.  Run:

          snmpconf -g basic_setup

   for an example.


   -f      Force  overwriting  existing  files  in  the  current directory
           without prompting the user if this is a desired thing to do.

   -i      When finished, install the files into the  location  where  the
           global system commands expect to find them.

   -p      When   finished,   install   the  files  into  the  users  home
           directory's .snmp subdirectory  (where  the  applications  will
           also search for configuration files).

           When finished, install the files into the directory DIRECTORY.

   -a      Don't  ask  any  questions.   Simply  read in the various known
           configuration files and write them back out  again.   This  has
           the  effect  of  "auto-commenting"  the configuration files for
           you.  See the NEAT TRICKS section below.

           Read in either all or none of the  found  configuration  files.
           Normally  snmpconf prompts you for which files you wish to read
           in.  Reading in these  configuration  files  will  merge  these
           files with the results of the questions that it asks of you.

   -R FILE,...
           Read in a specific list of configuration files.

           Groups of configuration entries can be created that can be used
           to walk a user through a  series  of  questions  to  create  an
           initial  configuration  file.   There are no menus to navigate,
           just a list of questions.  Run:

                  snmpconf -g basic_setup

           for a good example.

   -G      List all the known groups.

           snmpconf uses a directory of configuration information to learn
           about  the  files and questions that it should be asking.  This
           option  tells  snmpconf  to  use  a  different   location   for
           configuring itself.

   -q      Run  slightly  more  quietly.   Since  this  is  an interactive
           program, I don't recommend this option since  it  only  removes
           information from the output that is designed to help you.

   -d      Turn on lots of debugging output.

   -D      Add  even  more  debugging  output in the form of Perl variable


   snmpconf -g basic_setup
          Have I mentioned this command enough yet?  It's designed to walk
          someone  through  an  initial  setup  for  the  snmpd(8) daemon.
          Really, you should try it.

   snmpconf -R /usr/local/snmp/snmpd.conf -a -f snmpd.conf
          Automatically reads in an snmpd.conf file (for example) and adds
          comments to them describing what each token does.  Try it.  It's


   snmpconf is actually a  very  generic  utility  that  could  be  easily
   configured to help construct just about any kind of configuration file.
   Its default configuration set of files are SNMP based.
