Introduction:

You have an SNMPv3 capable device but somehow Spectrum cannot discover and model it due to network restriction. Spectrum can generate pingable model for the device and the device has been configured to send SNMPv3 traps to SpectroSERVER. This article explains how we can configure so Spectrum processes SNMPv3 trap for a pingable model.

Question:

Can Spectrum process SNMPv3 trap for a pingable model?

Answer:

Yes, what we need is to create SNMPv3 profile that matches the username, authentication and privacy passwords and their encryption algorithm specified in SNMPv3 trap.

The default value enable_traps_for_pingables parameter in $SPECROOT/SS/.vnmrc is TRUE. If you have set this parameter value to FALSE then you need to set it to TRUE and restart SpectroSERVER.
