What is Traps Server IP Address

I'm setting up a new DL380 G5 server using SmartStart 8.00 x64, and it is now asking me for the 'Traps Server IP Address'

This is the only server, a new one, what should I enter?
The IP address of the new server, or 127.0.0.1?

Thanks.

Re: What is Traps Server IP Address

If you had a server running Systems Insight Manager that servers IP address would be the best choice. Since this is the only server the loopback address will work fine. That will cause the agents to send the traps to this server and show up in the event log.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

By the way....if you add another server later on you can always change that to the IP address of the new server if you need to.
