16.2. Configuring the Master Agent

To use the subagent, you must have a master agent that supports AgentX. A common agent is Net-SNMP master agent, which may be available through your operating system vendor or can be downloaded from the Net-SNMP website, http://www.net-snmp.org.
The SNMP subagent included with Directory Server uses the AgentX protocol to communicate with the SNMP master agent running on your system. You must make sure that you enable AgentX support on your master agent. For Net-SNMP, add a line containing agentx master in the master agent's snmpd.conf file. For more details on configuring the master agent for AgentX support, see the Net-SNMP website, http://www.net-snmp.org.
