By default, the built-in trap receiver for VoIP Availability Manager is disabled. If the Avaya Enablement Pack, Cisco Enablement Pack, Nortel Enablement Pack, or VoIP Performance Manager Integration Pack is installed, you need to enable the built-in trap receiver so that traps issued by devices can be received and processed.

You can edit the voip.conf file and enable the built-in trap receiver. The parameter to be edited is:

# TrapPort = 9001

To enable trap reception:

  1. Go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory in the VoIP Availability Manager installation area and issue the following command to open the voip.conf file:

                   sm_edit conf/voip/voip.conf
  2. Find the following line:

    # TrapPort = 9001
  3. Uncomment the line (remove the # character) and change the value to 9001 or any value in the range 2049 to 65534 (inclusive). The value that you select becomes the port number on which the built-in trap receiver listens for traps.

  4. Save and close the file. The modified version of the voip.conf file is saved to the BASEDIR/smarts/local/conf/voip directory.

  5. If VoIP Availability Manager was running before you edited the voip.conf file, restart VoIP Availability Manager.

    In addition to enabling trap reception, you need to configure SNMP trap integration to distribute Avaya or Nortel traps to VoIP Availability Manager, as explained in Chapter 6, “Configuring the SNMP Trap Integration.”
