Upgrade Problem with nagios from lenny to Squeeze in debian

Because lenny is no longer supported I had to upgrade our nagios monitor server from lenny to squeeze. After the upgrade the check_snmp commands timed out. After some research I found out because of a licensing issues snmpd with the mibs are no longer installed by default.

1. Edit Source List
First I had to change the /etc/apt/source.list and add “contrib non-free”.

It should look similar to this:
deb http://ftp.ch.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.ch.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

2. Install SNMPD with the MIB List
#apt-get install snmpd
#apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader

3. Download Mibs
#/usr/bin/download-mibs

4. Restart SNMPD
I’m not sure if this step is necessary. I actually even restarted the whole server.
#/etc/init.d/snmpd restart
