VMAX SNMP trap - Trap Variables

Hi,

We are trying to understand trap forwarding from VMAX for any alerts/events in the VMAX array. As far as as I understand, we can configure SNMP through Unisphere.

- Is there any other configuration that can be done to receive VMAX traps?

- Besides, where can I get the MIB files for VMAX 

- Are there any documents around understanding the Trap Variables for the same.

Re: VMAX SNMP trap - Trap Variables

Hi,

in respect or recieving traps SNMP is the recommended way of configuring them. There is a really useful doc that goes into more detail on configuration and the trap variables

https://support.emc.com/docu78909_VMAX-Management-Software-8.3-Events-and-Alerts-Guide.pdf?language=...

and the mib's can be found here they are marked 7.x but can be used on 8.x

Re: VMAX SNMP trap - Trap Variables

install SE on any of the server available (preferably with direct storage/FC connection) and setup storevntd . You just need to tune the daemon_options file pointing to the SNMP trap destination that you have in your environment. personally I used EMC SRM back end server as the trap destination. You can use what is available in your environment.

Re: VMAX SNMP trap - Trap Variables

If an alert is sent via SNMP, does the recipient have to "CLEAR / ACK" the alert to allow a second alert to be sent?
