i am attempting to use the SNMP service with Opmanager.  I cannot get a response from the SNMP service, it is installed and running.  i have followed the directions from microsoft for config, security, and trap in services.  I have tried this on two Windows 2003 servers.  One is a pdc, the other a member.  i have tried other SNMP tools with the same result.  

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you checked the firewalls on these services?  If on try turning them off to see if the SNMP Trap will get through.  If the firewall is blocking them then you will need to add the exception for it!

there are no firewalls installed on either server.

Make sure the SNMP community name is set and "Accept SNMP packets from any host."

If there is no firewalls between server and OpsView console make sure that:
1. Windows firewall is not blocking anything (by default if turned on will block SNMP)
2. Community string marked on screenshot with number 1 is the same as community string set on OpsView side
3. "Accept SNMP packets from these hosts" option has IP address of OpsView host listed in order to allow SNMP communication from OpsView host

Once all confirmed and there is no other network devices which can block traffic SNMP communication should work.

You can also try to use SnmpB application to check connectivity:
