Configuring where traps are sent

When an SNMP trap is generated, it is sent to all configured SNMP hosts. You must configure the SNMP hosts in IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor.

To add an SNMP host:

  1. Click Menu Button () > System Settings.
  2. From the left navigation pane, click SNMP Hosts.
  3. Click Add Host.

    The Add SNMP Host window is displayed.

  4. Type the following information:
    • Host Name–The required IP address or machine name of the SNMP host (that is, the address of the ESM).
    • Port–The optional one- to five-digit port number that the SNMP host monitors for SNMP trap messages. The maximum value is 65535. The default value is 162.
    • Community–The required 1- to 64-character password to access the SNMP host computer. This field is case-sensitive.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Add to add another SNMP host, or click OK to close the System Settings window.
