SIM 5.2.2 & Brocade silkworm

Hi all,

I would like to manage Brocade Silkworm 3900,4100,4024,4020 and 3800 into SIM 5.2.2.I configured correctly the SMI Brocade Agent and i can see correctly all the devices into SIM database.The problem is that i can't receive SNMP trap from these devices? Is there any MIB file i need to compile on my sim server? Is there any particular configuration to do?

Thankas a Lot,
Fabrizio

fabrizio,

you should'nt need to compile any mibs for these devices. are you sure the snmp setup on the switches is correct, any firewalls in the way ? does sim show links to the switches ?

Hi,

There is a firewall but the SNMP udp port is opened.With Ethereal i can see the traps received by the SIM server.But into the SIM events browser i can' t see them.

Thanks.

fabrizio,

to clarify your switches have been discovered by hp sim so ping is ok, if you select one of these switches in hp sim then under tools and links does the data collection report get you anything ? and is the only entry in events the discovery one or none at all.
also in main toolbar under options --> events --> event filter settings do you have any entries in here ? i have unregistered and registered events marked and an "*" for all ip
addresses

good luck

Hi,

Into data collection reports i have correctly data provided via WBEM (SMI Agent).

The only event associated to these switch is the discover event.I will try to unregistered and registered events.( i will be on site only friday)
Can you confirm no mib files are needed?

Thanks a Lot.

Re: SIM 5.2.2 & Brocade silkworm

Of course You know that when you are manage the switches via brocade SMI agent, the events are from the machine where the agent is.

You can also configure SNMP in every switch to send traps "switch admin" --> SNMP

fabrizio,

also on the switch command agcfgshow will display snmp setup.

I don't know the "snmpmibcapshow" command.I will check it as soon as possible.About trap destination, the SMI Agent is installed on the same SIM server.

I found out the devices are not resolved by IP to HOSTNAME on the DNS server.I think the problem is this one.

Can you confirm, please?

Thanks.

fabrizio,

on the switch the snmpmibcapshow command will show you which events are configured to send an snmp trap. the
agcfgshow command should show you the snmp destination, community strings etc although these are probably best viewed in the switch gui.

good luck

fabrizio,

the dns hostname to ip resolution should'nt affect traps getting to hp sim if you have specified hp sim server ip address in the switch snmp trap destiination or hp sim server name is resolvable. the switches themselves will probably appear in hp sim as an ip address
rather than their name if they are not in dns.
either enter them into dns or they can be renamed in their settings tab in hp sim.

good luck

No, they are with hostname because SMI Agent provide them with hostname.Into SIM there is no information about their IP Address.
