VMWare Alerts

I am not getting the VM Alerts (VM MIB & Notification are loaded)

From the NNMi Dump the OID seems to be .1.3.6.1.4.1.6876.4.3.6.203 & in the notification configuration it is 1.3.6.1.4.1.6876.4.3.0.203

How do I get the VMWare alert to showup on the console?

Hello,

You assume, that need to write 6 instead of 0 prior to .203 because of "Generic trap: 6"...
It is false 😉 The "Generic trap" is an attribute of the PDU packet, not part of the SNMP trap OID. So the mentioned SNMP trap was defined properly.

How do I get the VMWare alert to showup on the console?

1. wait for a real trap from the ESX server
2. simulate it on the NNMi server (of course, first add ESX server to the NNMi node inventory)
    # nnmsnmpnotify.ovpl -v1 -a vc-app.test.com localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.6876.4.3.0.203

 

   best regards

Re: VMWare Alerts

Thank you for your response.

I see the alerts when I use the nnmtrapdump -t, even when I user "nnmsnmpnotify.ovpl -v1 -a vc-app.test.com localhost .1.3.6.1.4.1.6876.4.3.0.203"

The VMWare alerts seen in the nnmtrapdump are not in the Incident Browsing...

ESXi Server is added in NNMi & SNMPwalk is working fine.
