Follow this procedure to test SNMP trap reporting by sending a test trap.

An IP address and community have been added in the Set Up Alert Notifications window.

You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.

  1. Display the Device Manager - Storage Navigator main window.
  2. From the Maintenance Utility menu, select Alert Notifications.
  3. Select the SNMP tab.
  4. Click Send Test SNMP Trap.
    Reports the test SNMP trap to the community or user registered in the storage system. Reports the events registered in the storage system instead of the events that are set on the SNMP tab. If you want to test the events set on the SNMP tab, click Finish and apply to the storage system, and then report the test SNMP trap.
  5. Verify whether the SNMP trap report (reference code 7fffff) is received by the SNMP manager that has the IP address specified for Sending Trap Setting in the Alert Notifications window.
