cause
The SNMP Trap Monitor job PSDTRPMON automatically starts the SNMP service jobs QTMSNMPRCV and QSNMPSA.

fix

To prevent the SNMP service from starting when subsystem ZPSD is started, use one of the following 2 options:

Option 1

The following method holds the PSDetect Trap Monitor. The Trap Monitor will never be submitted while the monitor is held, even if the PSDetect subsystem is restarted.

  1. From PSMENU, select options 3 and 4.
  2. Specify option 7 (=Hold) next to Trap Action Monitor and press Enter.

Option 2

The following method removes the autostart job entry for the Trap Monitor from the PSDetect subsystem description. The PSDetect Trap Monitor job will never be submitted until the autostart job entry is added to the PSDetect subsystem description.

  1. Access an iSeries command line.
  2. Type ENDSBS ZPSD *IMMED and press Enter.
  3. Type RMVAJE SBSD(PSDETECT/ZPSD) JOB(STRTRPMON) and press Enter.
  4. Type ENDTCPSVR *SNMP and press Enter.
  5. Type STRSBS PSDETECT/ZPSD and press Enter.

If you ever want PSDetect to automatically start the SNMP service when the trap monitor is started, type command ADDAJE SBSD(PSDETECT/ZPSD) JOB(STRTRPMON) JOBD(PSDETECT/PSDSTRTRP) and press Enter.
