Simple Network Management Protocol allows CC-SG to push SNMP traps (event notifications) to an existing SNMP manager on the network. You should be trained in handling SNMP infrastructure to configure CC-SG to work with SNMP.
CC-SG also supports SNMP GET/SET operations with third-party solutions, such as HP OpenView. To support the operations, you must provide SNMP agent identifier information such as these MIB-II System Group objects: sysContact, sysName, and sysLocation. These identifiers provide contact, administrative, and location information regarding the managed node. See RFC 1213 for details.
To configure SNMP in CC-SG:
- Choose Administration > Configuration.
- Click the SNMP tab.
- Select the Enable SNMP Daemon checkbox to enable SNMP operations.
- To identify the SNMP agent running on CC-SG to a third-party enterprise Management Solutions, provide agent information under Agent Configuration. Type a Port for the agent (default is 161). Type a Read-Only Community string (default is public) and Read-Write Community string (default is private). Multiple community strings are allowed; separate them with a comma. Type a System Contact, System Name, and System Location to provide information regarding the managed node.
- Click Update Agent Configuration to save your changes.
- Select the Enable SNMP Traps checkbox to enable sending SNMP traps from CC-SG to a SNMP host.
- Type the Trap Destination Host IP address and Port number used by SNMP hosts in the Trap Destinations section. Default port is 162.
- Type the Community string and Version (v1 or v2) used by SNMP hosts in the Trap Destinations section.
- Select the checkboxes before the traps you want CC-SG to push to your SNMP hosts: Under Trap Sources, a list of SNMP traps grouped into two different categories: System Log traps, which include notifications for the status of the CC unit itself, such as a hard disk failure, and Application Log traps for notifications generated by events in the CC application, such as modifications to a user account. To enable traps by type, select the boxes marked System Log and Application Log. Individual traps can be enabled or disabled by selecting their checkboxes. Use the checkbox inside the Selected column header to enable all traps, or deselect all checkboxes. Refer to the MIB files for the list of SNMP traps that are provided. See MIB Files for details.
- Click Add to add this destination host to the list of configured hosts. There is no limit to the number of managers that can be set in this list.
- Click Update Trap Configuration to save your changes.
