Issue with snmp service

Hello,
I'm trying to install snmp on my server (redhat Linux FEACS 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64), but I have an issue when I try to start snmp, the error is:

[root@FEACS log]# service snmpd start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start snmpd.service
Job for snmpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status snmpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

commands results:

[root@FEACS log]# tail /var/log/snmpd.log 
Error opening specified endpoint ""
