I'm attempting to set a SNMP trap destination in OMSA (the latest build) to fire at OME.
I can set the community name, but when I attempt to enter the IP in the field it reverts to 0.0.0.0
I can enable and disable it, but I cannot set the IP
The following error is logged
Remote Access LAN destination address modified Failed!
The issue is that the SNMP destination configuration is done in the SNMP service and not in OMSA, as it is just an agent on the server that just needs to be running.
You can follow this link and it will provide assistance on setting up SNMP traps.
Let me know if this helps.
So this screen isn't relevant? I assumed this was where I would specify the event trap destination?
What I'm really trying to do is monitor health of a Gen11 unit which is running ESXI - I just want an alert if a disk fails etc.
I can see them in OMSA, and I can see them listed in OME, but I want an email alert send on any issue....
Would you confirm where you have everything installed? I ask because with ESXi you would need to load the OMSA VIB to the host, but then utilize OME to monitor and manage. So just want to be certain.
Machine 1: ESXI 6.5 (managed with VCSA) OMSA VIB installed and SNMP enabled in ESXI
Machine 2: Physical Win2016 unit (I need to use tape here!) OMSA installed and OME installed
I can login to Machine 1's OMSA via the console on Machine 2 as you'd expect
And I can see all the info for both in OME so that's all good, but I need to make sure it will actually notify if something goes wrong rather than me having look in OME all the time
