HP SIM Not Getting SNMP Traps

HP SIM Not Getting SNMP Traps

I'm trying to set up process monitoring. Using net-snmp version on Novell SLES 10. To test this, I tried setting up snmp on one server to notify SIM if httpd isn't running (which it isn't on this machine.) HP SIM is not getting the traps, thought it does get the "cold start" trap when I start snmpd on the test machine. My /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf looks like this:

rouser internal noauth
iquerySecName internal
agentSecName internal
authtrapenable 1
proc httpd
dlmod cmaX /usr/lib64/libcmaX64.so
monitor -r 60 -o prNames -o prErrMessage "process table" prErrorFlag != 0

Yes, I did set up the "internal" user using "net-snmp-config --create-snmpv3-user".

net-snmpd.log attached, if it helps any.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: HP SIM Not Getting SNMP Traps

Have you installed the HP Agents, as this updates the snmpd.conf file.
From our VMware ESX server there's a few differences in the snmpd.con file.

rocommunity ourhpsim.ourco.nz
trapsink ourhpsim.ourco.nz
syscontact root@localhost (edit snmpd.conf)
syslocation room1 (edit snmpd.conf)

Re: HP SIM Not Getting SNMP Traps

I finally figured it out. None of the system MIBs were imported into SIM. I had to do them all manually, guessing which ones I needed.

Is SIM supposed to import existing MIBs? I didn't see anything it the documentation about having to do that.
