Re: SNMP traps received in NNMi



As mentioned on that built in Admin Help Link:

"•If the Source Node or Source Object of the incoming trap has been discovered by NNMi using SNMPv3, NNMi accepts incoming traps from SNMPv3, SNMPv2c, or SNMPv1."


From what I recall, I think the order of 'preference' (and I may stand corrected later), the order is v2, v1, and then v3.


To take a full NNMi backup read the man pages (or reference help) for "nnmbackup.ovpl".


To just backup the NNMi database (embedded postgres), refer to "nnmbackupembdb.ovpl".
