SNMP files are located off the MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY.

[gpadmin@mdw gpseg-1]$ echo $MASTER_DATA_DIRECTORY

/data/4010/master/gpseg-1/
files: /data/4010/master/gpseg-1/gpperfmon/data/snmp

Make sure the snmp.conf looks like:

Category='Admin Switch' Device='AdminSwitch0001' Host='a-sw-1'
Category='Interconnect Switch' Device='InterconnectSwitch0001' Host='i-sw-1'
Category='Interconnect Switch' Device='InterconnectSwitch0001' Host='i-sw-2'

The file "/etc/gpdb_appliance_version" must be renamed to "/etc/gpdb-appliance-version."
