Enabling SNMP access

To enable the SNMP access on the node

  1. Open UDP port 161 on the management node as follows:

    1. On the Infrastructure > Networks screen, and then click Edit.
    2. Add the SNMP traffic type to your public network by selecting the corresponding check box.
    3. Click Save.
  2. Go to Settings > System settings > SNMP, and then turn on the toggle switch Enable SNMP on the management node. The network management system (SNMP monitor) will be enabled, giving you access to the cluster via the SNMP protocol.

  3. Click the provided link to download the MIB file, and then set it up in your SNMP monitor.
  4. Enable sending SNMP traps to your SNMP monitor as follows:

    1. Select Send SNMP traps to this network management system.
    2. Specify the IP address, Port, and Community of the network management system.

      By default, the snmptrapd daemon uses port 162. The default community is public.

    3. If required, click Send test trap to test the service.
  5. Click Save to apply the changes.
