The Notifications tab allows you to set up when a user should receive notification, by email, regarding the status of a service. You can also enable an SNMP Trap Setup.

The Enabled Trap column allows you to Enable/Disable an SNMP Trap, on a per process/service basis. To enable an SNMP Trap for a device or process, select the Enabled Trap check box for that device/process.

To setup SNMP Trap parameters (including trap destination and protocol version):

  1. Click SNMP Trap Setup. The SNMP Protocol Version menu displays. There are four sections to this screen.

    • SNMP Protocol Version

      • General

      • Security

      • Context


        This confirmation is on a per-server basis. For example, if there is more than one Network Configuration Manager Server (either Device or App Server) installed, you must repeat this configuration for each server by logging into the server’s System Management Console that corresponds to the server.

        SNMP Traps for all processes on any server are sent to the same Trap destination (configured on the SNMP Trap Setup page).

  2. Select the appropriate SNMP Version from the SNMP Protocol Version section. If you select SNMPv3, you have additional options available in the Security and Context sections.

  3. In the General section, enter the Destination and Port Number. The Destination can be an IP Address or the Host Name of the SNMP Trap Receiver. The Destination and Port Number fields are mandatory.

  4. Enter the Community String, in both the Community String and re-enter Community String fields. These fields are optional.

  5. If you selected SNMPv3 in Step 2, enter the relevant security information in the active fields in the Security section. If you selectedSNMP v3 as the Protocol Version, the security fields are enabled, and allow you to select information from drop-down menus.


    The User Name, Authentication Password, and Privacy Password fields are mandatory if you select the USM Security Model with Authentication and Privacy support.

  6. The Context section is relevant for SNMPV3 setup, the values are optional. Enter the context information (if any) into the fields.

  7. Click Save & Close. This ensures all the SNMP information you entered is saved.

  8. Click OK at the details message. The SNMP Protocol Version menu closes.

  9. Review the details of the information confirmation message that displays after you click Save & Close. Clicking Save & Close does not update the SNMP Trap details. You must select Save on the Notifications tab to Save the changes.

  10. At the Notifications tab, click Save. This is when the Trap Enabled/Disabled settings, and the Trap Setting Details are saved.

    Each email address is manually entered into the Email ID field. By selecting options from the Status drop-down list and saving, the user is notified when the selected status occurs to the service. The Status options include the following:

    • None – No status designated

    • Running – Set to receive notification when services are started by the management console

    • Stop – Set to receive notification when services are stopped by the management console

    • Both – Set to receive notification when services are stopped and started by the management console
