Re: "Generic Unregistered" and "authentication failure" alerts in HP SIM 6.1

Ok, so the test SNMP trap is contained in CPQHOST.MIB. Can you post the output of?

 

  • mxmib -t CPQHOST.MIB

Also, just check the following file exists

  • CPQHOST.CFG

This is the compiled MIB.

Yes, I see cpqhost.mib in SIM. The only difference from the screen shot given by you is that severity is Major in HP SIM, instead of Informational

This is not making any sense. Its like the traps are registered but the trap details are not.

Also, what version of the Insight Agents are you running on the server sending the test trap?

Re: "Generic Unregistered" and "authentication failure" alerts in HP SIM 6.1

Hello

 

i am getting too this generic unregistered

 

Event Name: (SNMP) Generic Unregistered

URL: ****

Event originator: ***

Event Severity: Informational

Event received: 22-Feb-2012, 12:15:01

 

Event description: A genericUnregistered trap signifies that a system has sent a trap to the management server for a MIB that has not yet been compiled.  Try compiling any MIBs from the vendor for this system to obtain additional information. See Details for more information.

 

cpqGenEntOIDStr: 1.3.6.1.4.1.8072.4

cpqGenTrapID: 6

cpqSpecTrapID: 2

 

so which is the right mib to use?

 

OS on the Server is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1

Re: "Generic Unregistered" and "authentication failure" alerts in HP SIM 6.1

Greetings all,

 

1.3.6.1.4.1.8072 is the OID for NET-SNMP (the snmp agent used in most Linux distributions)

 

8072.4  is netSnmp.netSnmpNotificationPrefix

 

Generic trapid 6 is 'enterprise-specific'

Specific trapid 2 is 'nsNotifyShutdown'

 

The Linux snmpd sends NOTIFICATIONs (not TRAPs) on startup, shutdown, and restart.

 

However, HPSIM does not support SNMPv2 NOTIFICATIONs. It can only receive SNMPv1 TRAPs.

 

Even if you convert the SNMPv2 MIB to SNMPv1 (using mcompile) and then import the mib into

HPSIM (using mxmib -a) the Linux agent is still sending a SNMPv2 PDU which is not equivalent

to an SNMPv1 PDU.

 

If you are intent on using HPSIM, your best bet would be to use some 3rd party translator

like snmptt on Linux or SimpleSnmpProxy on Windows to convert the v2 NOTIFICATION to

a v1 TRAP and then forward that to HPSIM.

 

I spent quite a bit of time chasing this down myself, so I hope this information is somewhat helpful.

 

kind regards,

-b
