[KBA-00143] SNMP trap setup for Omnicast™ 4.x

This article explains how to install the SNMP functionality that will send events to an SNMP trap system.


SNMP traps enable an agent to notify the management station of significant events (not necessarily an outage, a fault, or a security violation) by way of an unsolicited SNMP message.

IMPORTANT: We support version 1 SNMP traps only.
