### Zenoss Server

**Note**: Zenoss does *not* like special characters in the MySQL root

# Install necessary packages; MySQL and net-snmp are required  
yum -y install mysql-server net-snmp net-snmp-utils gmp libgomp libgcj liberation-fonts  
# Configure MySQL  
# Install Zenoss  
mkdir zenoss.temp; cd zenoss.temp  
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/zenoss/zenoss-3.2.0.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh zenoss-3.2.0.el5.i386.rpm  
service zenoss start

This sets up *everything*. Go get some tea; this shall take a
while. Then navigate to `http://:8080` to finish setup. [This
is your friend, friend.


Navigate to the directory where Zenoss was installed.

    [root@zenoss zenoss]# ./uninstall


*   Edit `/opt/zenoss/etc/zope.conf` and edit the `address` under ``.
*   Don't change the default directory (`/usr/local/zenoss`)
*   Changed zSnmpVer to v2c under "Configuration Properties" for Device Class
*   Reinstalled Zenoss for HDD monitoring
*   [A most excellent overview of SNMP](http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:_Ch22_:_Monitoring_Server_Performance#SNMP_Version_3).
    This is probably all you need to get started.
*   Change admin password like so:

        su - zenoss  

*   If you have a non-default port, your email alerts will still use the
    default (8080). To change this, edit `$ZENHOME/etc/zenactions.conf`,
    add a line like so, and restart Zenoss
