Is it not indicating that the SNMP Service (Trap Service) may not be running on the target node

Re: SNMP test trap issue

No, that seems to be saying one of the HP Agents themselves is not running.

The snmptrap service is used for receiving traps, typically it's not running, but would be running on the HPSIM server itself.

I'd check the event logs to see what services are failing.

When you installed this server was it built from Smart Start, or has the entire PSP been installed since?
Installing just parts of the PSP i.e. just the agents can produce unpredictable results.
