Trying to start snmpd on vmware from where i get the following error:
Call "HostServiceSystem.Start" for object "serviceSystem" on ESXi "10.0.0.5" failed.
Turns out that more people are having this problem on ESXi, but there is an easy fix.
ssh into your server and run:
esxcli system snmp set --communities public
esxcli system snmp set --enable true
