ibm x3650 ds3200 san snmp alerts
Posted on 2011-03-11
I can't find any information that describes how to configure snmp monitoring of a ds3200 unit using SAS HBA's in the host server(s).
I have both ethernet ports on the ds3200 connected to the network with valid IP's on the LAN subnet. The host servers are running vmware ESXi 4.1 (no service console).
I thought I had seen somewhere that the DS3200 will not send an snmp trap directly to a device on the LAN, but it has to go through the host(s).
I have a standalone server (i.e., not connected to the SAN) listening for traps. If I put this standalone server in the Storage Manager as a trap destination, I see no traps from the ds3200.
Can someone clarify how I can get reliable SNMP traps from the ds3200 to a standalone server on the same wire?
