Stop snmpd from spamming syslog

Dell’s OpenManage tools come with a MIB to allow for the system to query against and set up traps. However, by default, snmpd will not allow arbitrary smux peers, and your logs will be spammed with the following:

Apr 29 19:19:37 server snmpd[4321]: [smux_accept] accepted fd 9 from 127.0.0.1:39622
Apr 29 19:19:37 server snmpd[4321]: refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, descr Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager
Apr 29 19:19:40 server snmpd[4321]: [smux_accept] accepted fd 9 from 127.0.0.1:39693
Apr 29 19:19:40 server snmpd[4321]: refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, descr Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager
Apr 29 19:19:43 server snmpd[4321]: [smux_accept] accepted fd 9 from 127.0.0.1:39790
Apr 29 19:19:43 server snmpd[4321]: refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, descr Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager

Add the following to you /etc/snmpd/snmpd.conf:

smuxpeer .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1

and restart snmpd.
