Alerts authentification failure ::1

Jump to solution

Hello,

I'm using Dell OME 2.1.0.2635 to monitore Dell PowerEdge servers (T410, T420, T430, T610) with Dell OMSA 8.2 installed.

I'm getting a lot of Authentification Failure alerts like the following :

When i try to ignore this type of alert, i've got a popup Window which said that it can't link the device for this alert :

Is there any way to know which device is sending this alert ? (or force ignore this alert)

Thank you for your help.

Best Regards,

Samy Girard

Hi Samy,

When you click on the alert, you will see the IP address from which it is coming.But from this screenshot this seems to be a localhost IP. Is your local machine configured to send alerts to itself? You can check that in SNMP service settings from services.msc.


You can either change that setting or if you want to force ignore an alert for a specific device or from all devices, then Right click on the Alert from "Alerts" page and select "Ignore on this device only". That will ignore that alert from being shown in OME.

Hi,

Looks like you are right : the SNMP trap was configured to send to itself on the OME Server.

I have disabled the SNMP trap service and removed the SNMP trap destination : i'm gonna check tomorrow if i'm still getting alerts.
