bsnmpd logs errors when /etc/printcap is missing
We do not ship with an /etc/printcap file but it appears that bsnmpd does not like that fact. When probed in various ways (especially when querying SNMP OID 126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.5 ), bsnmpd logs an error to the system log:
snmpd: hrPrinterTable: printcap entry for <noname?> has errors, skipping
With an empty /etc/printcap (
touch /etc/printcap), no errors are logged.
We could include a blank printcap or include the FreeBSD default printcap file which is logically empty as it all of its contents are comments.
