The Failover Manager registers the Active Trap Adapter with a Broker. The Standby Trap Adapter is not registered with a Broker until the Standby Trap Adapter changes to an Active state. When no failover occurs, the Standby Trap Adapter only receives the traps and does not forward them to SAM.

Use the following steps to configure Trap Adapter, acting as a trap receiver, for failover:

  1. Configure the Trap Adapter service on Active and Standby locations on page 49

  2. Start the Trap Adapter service on page 49

  3. Add the Trap Adapter to the Failover Manager on page 49
