I've read the doco which specifies that the SouthBound GateWay is capable of using Host_Dell, Host_systemEDGE, etc etc devices instead of EventAdmin
I was wondering whether it's possible to use Host_Device as well.
The attributes for Host_Device contain "Enable_SouthboundGateway" which I've enabled, but I'm not sure whether the Host_Device model itself just isn't capable of SouthBound GateWay or whether I've setup my SNMP traps wrong
Does anyone have any idea if Host_Device will work for SBGW ?
So it seems that you can use Host_Device for SBGW, however I cannot get it to raise an alarm against a different server to the one that it is coming in on.
If i use a fictional server / one that isn't present in Spectrum, then it will create an EventModel in the container that I specify though.
Using a server that already exists though results in no alarms being raised on the server.
Any one know why that is ?
Did you try changing attribute Enable_SouthboundGateway on the server that already exists?
I tried playing with this attribute for a little bit and could not get it to work as desired, the behavior you observed is probably why.
I believe so. I may be mistaken though, I will double check tomorrow at work.
