Prerequisites for monitoring QLogic SANBox Switches

  • Ensure SNMP agent is running in the QLogic SANbox Switch. To view the SNMP settings
  • Use the QLogic Switch telnet command "show setup snmp".
    For any changes use "set setup snmp".
  • OpStor by default, uses snmp port 161 and read community 'public' for discovery. If your settings are different , please provide the same in the OpStor web-client while adding Switch.
  • Register OpStor server IP address as a snmp trap destination for the QLogic Switch
