net-snmp-cert missing in rolling release
Open, NormalPublicBUG

Description

In VyOS 1.2.0-rolling+201806040337 rolling this results in:

$ show snmp v3 certificates
sudo: /usr/bin/net-snmp-cert: command not found

Compare to VyOS 1.1.7 which ships this in libsnmp15:

$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/net-snmp-cert
libsnmp15: /usr/bin/net-snmp-cert

$ /usr/bin/net-snmp-cert
Choose an operation:
        gencert -  Generate a signed certificate
        genca   -  Generate a CA certificate
        gencsr  -  Generate a Certificate Signing Request
        signcsr -  Sign a Certificate Signing Request

libsnmp15 is superseeded by libsnmp30 which no longer ship those utils (https://packages.debian.org/jessie/amd64/libsnmp30/filelist). This means that there is currently no easy way to create the SNMPv3 certificates.
