I have some issues with enabling SNMP on the Proxmox server. I can't overcome them, and it's still in inactive mode with "condition failed.
Can anyone help

In your screenshot it states that the required file /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf does not exist. Go look for it.

A default-one should have been created by "apt install snmpd".

Good luck

Thank you for your reply!
I tried to install it, and I already removed and reinstalled Aging, but still this issue persists. Could you please provide me with steps? I'm new to Proxmox and Linix

Your screenshot shows that there is no "snmp" folder. So actually I am wondering if tha package "snmpd" is installed. But then what script produces the output in the first post.

Whatsoever, on my PVE I have snmpd installed. I can check the installed/availabled version like this:
Code:
~# apt policy snmpd
snmpd:
  Installed: 5.9+dfsg-4+deb11u1
  Candidate: 5.9+dfsg-4+deb11u1

You should see only a "Candidate", no "Installed" version. Then try to install it via apt install snmpd. If the system claims that is already installed you can reinstall it by requesting apt install --reinstall snmpd

But all in all: somehing on your side is inconsistent. If it is not installed there should be no startscript...
