Its bit off topic for this forum but we HDS is connected to SAN and monitoring SAN is just as important and since i am getting no where to get alerts with BNA i thought i would post here.
I have Brocade Network Advisor installed and configured on Windows 2003 but i am failing to get any alerts from the switches after several alerts have been configured.
So far i have done the follwoing
1. Verified server SNMP service where BNA is installed is accepting snmp from any host , service is up ( both snmp & snmp trap listener),
2. Verified that server is listening to SNMP Traffic from any host via
netstat -na|findstr 161
UDP 0.0.0.0:69 *:* 5060
UDP 0.0.0.0:161 *:* 1904
Server firewall has port 161 n 162 exception and its also off.
On the switch:
SNMPv3 USM configuration: ( other form of snmpv3 and snmpv1 config has been tried, currently set to no authrizition needed)
User 1 (rw): snmpadmin1
Auth Protocol: MD5
Priv Protocol: noPriv
Engine ID: 80:00:06:34:03:00:50:56:91:00:56
& SNMP Trap config has valid server ip and port 162 listed.
Event alerts are configured to monitor events on BNA
One port is offline delibratly
No events received so far
i tried using paessler snmp tester V 5.1.2 and althouht i can do Read device uptime it gets an error when reading snmp walk
Note: i have not supplied any MIB or Walk string ( leaving it empty meaning check all)
got an error -2007/-2003
SNMP MIBWALK is funtional from the server and ports are listening, alerts have been configured for tras , offline ports and other default alerts.
for some reason BNA is sending no alerts, although alerts themself are working sicne i receive several server related alerts from BNA , so there is no issue with email setup for alerts, i am not even seeying port offline or ther events in the log of BNA.
Brocade switches are setup for snmp alerting & access list etc have been configured.
If someone has privous experiance setting up BNA to monitor san & has working document i would appricate it.
