The Storage Management alerts are displayed in the Server Administrator alert log and are forwarded to the Windows application alert log. If you have SNMP installed on the managed system (and the SNMP service is running), the Storage Management alerts in the Windows application alert log are forwarded as SNMP traps. In order for these traps to be viewable, however, a target system or application must be configured to receive these traps. SNMP traps that are generated by Storage Management can be viewed in any standard SNMP-compatible enterprise management console.
The Windows SNMP service must be configured to forward the SNMP traps to the target system or application. When forwarding to an application, the application should also be configured to receive the SNMP traps. The IT Assistant application is already configured to receive the SNMP traps generated by Storage Management.
See Windows operating system documentation for information on configuring the operating system to forward SNMP traps. This information may be located under such topics as Setting up SNMP or SNMP traps . When configuring SNMP for Windows, be sure that the SNMP traps are forwarded to the correct server. For information on configuring an application to receive SNMP traps, see the documentation for that application.
