Issue:
snmptd probe is not able to receive traps from the respective drive. However traps are hitting the server when checked from wireshark.
Resolution:
From the netstat output can see UDP port 162 active even when the snmptd probe is deactivated  .This implies some other application is listening to that port .

Ensure that ports used are free (UDP/162 is the default port). You can issue the netstat -an command to search and confirm the port status. For example, if the UDP 0.0.0.0:162 port is present, then some other application, such as HP OpenView and Compaq Insight Manager are using this port.
