ibm x3650 ds3200 san snmp alerts

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?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that you have to actually use the IBM DS3000 family storage manager product, then THAT software gets configured to send out SNMP traps.

I have the Storage Manager 10 on a server connected to the same LAN as the management ports in the DS3200, and the SM Agent and SM Monitor services are running.  The SM Agent says that it must be installed on a host with FC, iSCSI, or SAS connection to the DS3200 - this server has none of those, as the DS3200 uses SAS connections to (2) servers.

Will I still get the SNMP alerts/info as long as the SM Monitor service is running and configured to connect to the mgt ports on the DS3200 - it shows up as connected when I open the SM Client.

Thanks again!

- I can't tell you for sure, never had hands on this particular system, but that is how it works for others.

I don't think I'll force an error by pulling power or a disk, so I'll do a bit of wait and see.  Thanks
