Hi, I'm trying to monitor an M9000 Platform

at this time domain agents are up and running but the service processor agent's is stopped and I can't find how to start it.

this is the output from setsunmc and showsunmc

XSCF> setsunmc -s 140.126.65.82 -z segob -c public -p 1161 -t 162 -e 163 -a 161 -d 1161
setsunmc: Updating Sun MC config file

XSCF> showsunmc
Agent Status: Disabled, stopped
Setup Status: Set up
SunMC Server: 140.126.65.82
Security Seed: segob
SNMPv1 Community String: public
Agent Port: 1161
Host Trap Port: 162
Host Event Port: 163
SNMP Agent Port: 161
Domain Agent Port: 1161

XSCF> setsunmc enable
setsunmc: Agent enabled.
setsunmc: Note that this command will return before SunMC is completely enabled.

XSCF> showsunmc
Agent Status: Enabled, stopped
Setup Status: Set up
SunMC Server: 140.126.65.82
Security Seed: segob
SNMPv1 Community String: public
Agent Port: 1161

SNMP Agent Port: 161

Do you have any clue why Agent won't start?

Thanks for any comment

    Is the SNMP agent started? The SunMC agent will proxy the SNMP agent locally on the service processor for some information.

    I agree: if you haven't, check showsnmp.

    You may also want to run setsnmp disable, setsnmp enable and then try setting and enabling sunmc.

    I just came across this thread and have encountered this issue before.

    Check to see if a name server is set with a "shownameserver" - or use "setnameserver" to set one. Use the man pages for specific syntax use. ie "man setnameserver"

    There is a requirement to have the nameserver set on the XSCF or the SunMC agent will not start.

    Hope this helps,
