Introduction: 

When SpectroSERVER receives an alarm from a SNMP trap, SpectroServer normally creates an alarm under the agent IP address in a SNMP trap.

Question: 

How can SpectroSERVER create an alarm under the source IP address from a SNMP trap?

Environment:  

Spectrum 9.X; Spectrum 10.X.

Answer: 

  1. Go to OneClick console à Universe à “Topology” Tab, click on “Create a new model by type and adds it to this view” button.
  2. Select “EventAdmin” from the Container list and click on “OK”.                                                            3.PNG                                                              
  3. Fill out the relevant information as the screen capture below and click on “OK”. Please make sure the Network address here is the source IP address in the SNMP traps.                                                                                                                                                                    5.PNG                                                                                                                                                      
  4. Go to the Attribute tab, please set the value of "map_traps_to_this_model_using_IP_header" to "Yes". By default, it is set to "No".
  5. When SpectroSERVER receives the SNMP traps, the alarms will be created under the source IP address.
