Post-Installation verification of SNMP traps being sent from e-Manage to SNMP trap host
Step by Step Guide
Download SNMP trap viewer on host
Install and start SNMP trap viewer on host
In Elastifile UI navigate to > System Settings > Notifications > SNMP
Use UI "slider" to enable SNMP
Add IP of SNMP trap host into "SNMP Server" field
Use Elastifile UI action button "Test SNMP" to generate test SNMP trap
Verify test SNMP trap was received on trap host
Make sure ports 161 and 162 are opened in the firewall between the EMS and the SNMP trap host server.
You can also use netcat to test the connectivity between the two servers:
1. Testing connection from EMS to SNMP trap host, run the following command on EMS:
$ echo "test" | nc -vv -u <traphost_ip> 162
This will show an error on the SNMP trap host server, meaning SNMP port is opened between EMS and SNMP trap host.
