To enable Hitachi Remote Ops to work with HCP, you need to enable SNMP in the HCP System Management Console. When you enable SNMP, you can select version 1 or 2c or version 3.

By default, Hitachi Remote Ops is configured to support SNMP version 1 or 2c with the community name public. If you change the community name in HCP or if you select version 3, you need to configure a new SNMP user in Hitachi Remote Ops to match what you specify in HCP. For more information about this, see the Hitachi Remote Ops documentation.

Once SNMP is enabled, the first four nodes in the HCP system monitor for switch SNMP traps. If there are more than four HCP nodes in the system, additional HCP node back-end addresses can be added to the SNMP trap receivers list on the back-end switches. For more information about adding extra nodes back-end address to the SNMP trap receivers list, contact your HCP customer support.
