Contributors netapp-folivia netapp-thomi NetAppZacharyWambold

To use SNMP with the Tiebreaker software, you must configure SNMP settings.

  1. Use the Tiebreaker CLI snmp config wizard command to add MetroCluster configurations.

    Note Only one SNMP trap host is currently supported.

    The following example shows the configuration of an SNMP receiver that supports SNMP V1 with an IP address of, port number 162 for trap messages, and the community string set to public:

    NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker :> snmp config wizard
    Enter SNMP Version [V1/V3]: V1
    Enter SNMP Host:
    Enter SNMP Port: 162
    Enter SNMP V1 Community: public
    Successfully added SNMP properties to NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker software.
    NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker :>

    The Tiebreaker software is ready to send traps to the SNMP receiver that you specified.

  2. Verify that the SNMP settings are configured:

    snmp config test

    The following example shows that the Tiebreaker software can send an SNMP trap for the event TEST_SNMP_CONFIG:

    NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker :> snmp config test
    Sending SNMP trap to localhost. Version : V1.
    Successfully sent SNMP trap for event TEST_SNMP_CONFIG
    NetApp MetroCluster Tiebreaker :>
