Issue with snmp service

Hello,

I'm trying to install snmp on my server (redhat Linux FEACS 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64), but I have an issue when I try to start snmp, the error is:

[[email protected] log]# service snmpd start

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start snmpd.service

Job for snmpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status snmpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.



commands results:

[[email protected] log]# tail /var/log/snmpd.log

    In this guide I’ll be explaining how to install the SNMP service on CentOS.

    The SNMP service is available in the standard CentOS repository.

    1. Install net-snmp with yum:


    yum install net-snmp

     2. Create a simple SNMP configuration:


    mv /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf.org
    vim /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf

    Add the following to /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf ; Replace 1.2.3.4 with the IP address of the server that you want to allow SNMP lookups from:


    rocommunity public 1.2.3.4

     3. Start the SNMP service, and set it to auto-start on reboot:


    /etc/init.d/snmpd start
    chkconfig snmpd on

    If you have a firewall configured, ensure that you have UDP port 161 open to your SNMP lookup server.

     

    On your SNMP lookup server, you can do the following to perform a quick SNMP test to ensure that it’s working. Replace 1.2.3.3 with the server’s address that you just configured SNMP on:


    snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 1.2.3.3
