Prerequisites for monitoring EMC Celerra

OpStor uses EMC Celerra Command Line Interface of EMC Celerra Network Attached Storage System

Steps to add OpStor Server IP as a Trap Recipient

  • Login to Celerra Control Station
  • Open the file /nas/site/trap.cfg and add the following line

snmpmanager <IP_ADDRESS>; communityname public

where <IP_ADDRESS> is the IP Address of the Server in which OpStor is running.

Steps to verify whether OpStor Server is configured properly to listen for EMC Celerra SNMP Traps.

  • Execute the below command to send a test SNMP Trap

/nas/sbin/nas_snmptrap /nas/site/trap.cfg -m /nas/sys/emccelerra.mib -r 1 -f 64  -i 5 -s 6 -d "test SNMP traps"

  • Now you can see the generated SNMP Trap in OpStor webclient.
