Adding an SNMP traphost

You can use the System Manager to add a traphost (SNMP manager) to receive SNMP notifications (SNMP trap protocol data units) when traps are generated in the cluster.

Before you begin

IPv6 must be enabled on the cluster if you configure SNMP traphosts that have IPv6 addresses.

About this task

SNMP and SNMP traps are enabled by default. The NetApp Technical Report TR-4220 on SNMP support contains lists of all default events that are supported by SNMP traps.

Procedure

  1. In the SNMP window, click EDIT to open the Edit SNMP Settings dialog box.
  2. In the Trap Hosts tab, verify that the Enable traps check box is selected and click Add.
  3. Enter the traphost IP address, and then click OK in the Trap Hosts pane.
    The IP address of an SNMP traphost can be IPv4 or IPv6.

    This image shows the Edit SNMP Settings dialog box, Traphosts tab, in which the traphost status "enabled" is checked and the example traphost IP address "192.0.2.0" is entered.
  4. To add another traphost, repeat Steps 2 and 3.
  5. When you finish adding traphosts, click OK in the Edit SNMP Settings dialog box.
