Monitor Proxmox on Librenms


Been trying to setup monitoring for my proxmox on librenms.

Keep getting this error;

Could not connect to X.X.X.X, please check the snmp details and snmp reachability

SNMP v2c: No reply with community random8886

my snmp.conf file on proxmox is as below;

Is snmpd service running on the proxmox server?

snmpd is running on the proxmox server.

It’s not listening for a connection, add this:

agentAddress udp:161,udp6:[::1]:161

This may not be the only issue, I haven’t used v2c in years. Might I ask why you are?
