SNMP traps from HP NNMi -> SCOM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We wan't to forward snmp traps from hp nnmi to scom.

    I have found a description of a solution for this here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/19c29988-dfe8-4918-b0d5-f3124bcfea95/operations-manager-and-hewlett-packard-nnmi?forum=operationsmanagergeneral

    I have added a server as snmp device. By using snmptrapgen I have also confirmed that the traps are received from scom.

    In NNM I have specified that all traps are to be forwarded to the server which is discovered as a network device. I have also activated the snmp services and set the correct settings. These traps have not been received in scom.

    Have I understood this correctly? If NNMi just forwards the traps, will not the traps have source IPs which is not registered as network devices in SCOM, and therefor be discarded? 

    I would very much like to hear from people how have done a simular type of integration :)


    Thanks in advance, Best Regards

  • Yes, I think the Network Devices need to be discovered first in order to receive traps and generate alerts.

  • I'm new to SCOM 2012 always used HP products such as NNM, OMW etc. and I need to do the same thing since we're replacing OMW with SCOM 2012 that is getting traps forwarded to SCOM from NNMI. I have been told that SCOM can not discover a windows server as a network device.

    So my question is how do I get the traps to SCOM since our NNMI app runs on Windows?

    I do have the SNMP configuration working in SCOM.. One app running on linux is sending us traps which is working fine

  • Hi,it was mentioned in


    you can use xian snmp device simulator or something like that to add a windows server as SNMP device.
