MSA 2050 SNMP Monitoring

Hello Community, we would like monitor our MSA 2050 through our nagios monitoring via snmp. But wenn i try an snmpwalk from our monitoring host to our MSA, i only get Timeout: No Response from -MSA-IP- In the SNMP settings i only can configure traphosts and communitys for read and write access. In System Settings / Services the SNMP service is enabled. So whats the secret to get a response from our MSA via snmpwalk ? MSA 2050 version : VL270R001-01 Thanx and greets Tom

Re: MSA 2050 SNMP Monitoring

Hi Tom,

What SNMP version are you using? Note that MSA SNMP traps are sent over port 162.

If you're using SNMPv3 this might help: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-a00088574en_us

Cheers,
Dardan

Re: MSA 2050 SNMP Monitoring

Hi Dardan,

Our monitoring does not recieve traps, so we dont wanne use them.

We just wanna query the snmpd agent on the msa. Is this also possible?

On the monitoring host we tried it with

snmpwalk -c COMMUNTIY -v2c -MSA-IP-
and
snmpwalk -c COMMUNTIY -v1 -MSA-IP-

without luck.

Re: MSA 2050 SNMP Monitoring

Tried the following against a MSA 2050 (VL270P003-01) and it works:

snmpwalk -r: <IP MSA> -c:"COMMUNITY_STRING" -v:2c -p:161

snmpwalk -r: <IP MSA> -c:"COMMUNITY_STRING" -v:2c

snmpwalk -r: <IP MSA> -c:"COMMUNITY_STRING" -v:1

P.S. Using net-snmp for Windows.
