How to monitor VA7400

Hi,

I need some input on how to automatically monitor a VA7400. Is there anyway to send SNMP traps through Command View or do I have to parse the logfiles. It's a pure Win2k environment. Any sugesstions?

Thanks,

CommandView will send SNMP traps. How to set it up is in the documentation.

Good Luck

Hi Vincent,

I must be blind, I can't find anything in the Commandview documentation (1.03) on how to configure it to send SNMP traps. Is it in the online documentation for CV for HP-UX, I'm running CV on Windows 2000 so that may be the reason for not finding it.

You asked for it... everything you every wanted to know about CommandView and SNMP, but were afraid to ask... See attached zip file for the docs.

Good luck!

Oh - don't forget to set SNMPTRAP_DEST in the config files. You have to tell it where to send the traps!

I can't remember if it goes in one of the files in c:\sanmgr\commandview\client\config or in server\config, you you will have to look for the SNMPTRAP_DEST in the config files there and modify it. Sorry - I'm not able to access a CommandView station from where I am today or I would check for you.

Here's a link to the latest config guide for CV SDM:

Good luck!
