We're just starting to poke at SNMP, and my first attempt at bringing up the subagent are not going smoothly. The master agent is working fine (we have a Spectrum system that is able to retrieve various CPU and memory stats for example). But every time I try to start the subagent I get a seg fault:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/ndssnmpsa start
Starting NDS SNMP Subagent ...

Source Tree Name : .OURTREE
Enter username.context : adminuser.context
Enter password :
Remember password - (y/n) : n
/etc/init.d/ndssnmpsa: line 34: 25422 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /opt/novell/eDirectory/bin/ndssnmpsa
ndssnmpsa startup failed
We've tried all the tips/suggestions in the "Troubleshooting SNMP docs (https://www.netiq.com/documentation/...a/bq0gc63.html) to no avail. I see a successful connection to eDirectory in the ndssnmpsa.log file:

Mar 12 14:40:20 hostname.umich.edu Information: Logged in successfully to '' eDirectory server.
so I know I'm putting in the username/password correctly. /var/log/messages shows:

Not sure about the "Package 'novell-NOVLsubag' isn't signed with proper key" error - the RPM validates fine with rpm -V.

I'm opening an SR but just wondered if anyone has experienced anything similar. My guess is that the "error 4 in libc-2.17.so" is the important piece of the puzzle; Google shows lots of miscellaneous issues over the last year or two involving this particular error (none that are SNMP specific though).

I will report back with whatever we discover...
