Setting Up SNMP

Use the following procedure to set up SNMP Support.

Note: Before performing this procedure, migrate the CDMIB and IBM® Connect:Direct® Trap Configuration files to HP OpenView. Refer to Customizing SNMP in Installing IBM Connect:Direct in the IBM Connect:Direct for z/OS® Configuration Guide for more information.
  1. Specify SNMP=YES in the initialization parameters file.
  2. If you want to exclude or disable any trap event or define additional trap triggers described in Identifying Trap Variables, create a data set containing all the trap events that you want to disable. Following is an example.
    Note: All traps are enabled by default.
    sendStatusTraps = N
    statsDisabled = N
    statsStress = N
    statsStressResolved = N
    userMessageAlarm = ( SVTM100I ,  SVTM101I  )

    A sample SNMP.DSN file is in the $CD.SDGASAMP data set, member DGAXSNMP.

    If you do not want to exclude any trap events, go to step 4.

  3. Set the SNMP.DSN initialization parameter to the data set name created in step 2.
    SNMP.DSN=data set name
  4. Set the SNMP.MANAGER.ADDR initialization parameter. This parameter is the TCP/IP address or hostname of the host where the SNMP Network Manager is initialized. By default, this address is the same as the TCP/IP address that IBM Connect:Direct is using or the local hostname. In a IBM Connect:Direct/Plex environment, the default is the TCP/IP address of the IBM Connect:Direct Manager. This parameter is required if the network manager resides on a different host or is required to use a different TCP/IP address. Following is an example.
  5. Set the SNMP.MANAGER.PORTNUM initialization parameter. This port is the TCP/IP port that is defined for UDP traffic to the network manager. The default is 162. This parameter is required if the defined UDP port number is something other than 162. Following is an example.
