Configuring SNMP traphosts to receive event notifications

To receive event notifications on an SNMP traphost, you must configure a traphost.

Before you begin

About this task

If you do not already have an SNMP traphost configured to receive event notifications (SNMP traps), you must add one.

You can perform this task any time the cluster is running by entering the commands on the ONTAP command line.

Procedure

If your environment does not already have an SNMP traphost configured to receive event notifications, add one: system snmp traphost add -peer-address snmp_traphost_name
All event notifications that are supported by SNMP by default are forwarded to the SNMP traphost.
