SNMP V2 & V3 Traps Configuration

Postby njbhatt18 » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:45 am


We have setup Nagios XI, It's perfectly working with SNMP v2 traps. But some of our devices are only sending snmp v3 traps.
I was wondering how I can configure Nagios XI to accept SNMP v2 & v3 traps together?

Can anyone help me for this issue?

See ... ifications for setting up SNMPv3 traps. I tested their example by putting this in /etc/snmp/snmptrapd.conf:

Code: Select all
createUser -e 0x8000000001020304 traptest SHA mypassword AES
authuser log traptest

and restarting snmptrapd:

Code: Select all
serivce snmptrapd restart

When SNMPv3 traps came in I would see it in /var/log/snmptt/snmpttunknown.log and added it in XI. See screenshot.

You'll then want to find it under Admin > Monitoring Config > Unconfigured Objects to add as a service in XI.
