SNMP Agent configuration

Alert Notification Guide for VSP 5000 Series

Part Number

The SNMP Agent is installed on the service processor (SVP), which is the computer within the storage system that manages the storage system.

The storage system has an exclusive LAN for communications with the SVP and a separate LAN for SNMP. The configuration of each Network Management Station is determined by the type of SNMP manager.

The following figure illustrates the SNMP environment.

Note: If you cannot enter multiple MIB definition files in the SNMP Manager software, use the MIB definition file for VSP 5000 series. In this case, determine the storage system model by referring to the storage system nickname displayed in an error report.

The following figure shows an example of SNMP operations using an SNMP manager.
