snmp configuration overrides upon starting Hadoop services

  • #33913
    Amalan Jagan

    We are using ambari-server- and upon restarting Hadoop services, its found that the default snmpd.conf is overridden. Can someone help me to understand whether the problem is so as to fix this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Amalan,
    Can you describe a little further what the issue is or what you are trying to do? By default, all settings for the components are saved in ambari and hence if the configuration files such as core-site.xml or mapred-site.xml file are modified manually outside of ambari, they will revert back to the original file saved in ambari.

    I have the same issue. I am running HP tools on the server which relies on SNMP and monitoring the server with solarwinds using snmp. I merge the hadoop snmpd.conf file with the HP snmp file, and all was working. the server was restarted and the snmpd.conf file returned to its prior state. This is problematic as we use HP tools and Solarwinds to monitor our environment.

    How do I fix this?
