refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2

Open Manager Bug with SNMP-SMUX

I had this problem on ESX4 with Open Manager 6.10

The error:

refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, descr Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager

Solution of the problem

1. Edit the SNMPD configuration
vi /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
smuxpeer .
smuxpeer . <password>

2. set password OSMA
cd /opt/dell/srvadmin/dataeng/bin/
./dcecfg32 command=setsmuxpassword password=<password>

3. restart OMSA restart

4. restart SNMPD
/etc/init.d/snmpd restart
5. snmp running OK now.
tail -f /var/log/messages
tail -f /var/log/net-snmpd.log

Another simple solution, disable SNMP:

service snmpd stop

  1. Thanks for this advice! I’ve got 6 servers who’s logs are filling up fast with these periodic checks. But not anymore. 🙂

  2. Hi !

    Also thanks alot – my servers also got spammed with those entrys, after enabling snmp.
    Now everything is working fine again.
