CA Spectrum Southbound Gateway and SNMP v3 traps

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  CA Spectrum Southbound Gateway and SNMP v3 traps

    Posted Jun 14, 2018 11:22 PM


    I have setup CA spectrum 10.2.x to act as a SBGW trap receiver to act as a manager of managers 

    Other systems send a custom snmpv2 trap and I've set Spectrum up to process the traps into Event models  based on the rules in place for the SBGW and event admin

    The traps usually come via a CLI script running

    snmptrap -v2c <community> <spectrumIP>  trappayload1 trappayload2 etc

    This works perfectly well and creates event models based on the payloads


    I want to make this more secure using v3 traps sending sort of like

    snmptrap -e 0x0102030405 -v 3 -u myuser -a MD5 -A mypassword -l authPriv -x DES -X myprivpassword <spectrumIP>  trappayload1 trappayload2 etc


    The part I've not sure of is how / where I configure the relevant information in Spectrum or on the Spectrum server for processing these traps.


    Also I do run Spectrum SDC's - so do I need to configure the SDC nodes which are retrieving the new v3 traps and if so, where

    Ok , that was easy - I added an snmp v3 profile (accessed from Topology, Create a new model by IP)   with the correct info and it worked. .....Well for direct trap sending, will expirement on SDC next
