SNMP Manager Plugin Guide 4.1

SNMP Manager 4.1

To integrate SNMP devices into Security Center, you must install the SNMP Manager plugin on a Security Center server and on all client workstations.

What you should know

  • Although it is possible to host the plugin role on any server, it is a best practice to host that role on a dedicated expansion server for best system performance.
  • For your operators to have access to the features added by this plugin, you must install this plugin on all Security Center client workstations.


  1. Open the GTAP Product Download page.
  2. From the Download Finder list, select your version of Security Center.
  3. Search for your package by name and download it.
  4. Click the downloaded .exe file to unzip it.
    By default, the file is unzipped to C:\Genetec.
  5. Close Security Desk and Config Tool.
  6. Open the extracted folder, right-click the setup.exe file, and click Run as administrator.
  7. Follow the installation instructions.
  8. On the Setup Type page, choose Typical.
    The typical option installs the SNMP Manager plugin and RabbitMQ.
  9. If prompted, on the RabbitMQ Configuration page, enter a user name and password, and choose an SSL port for RabbitMQ. The default port is 5671.
    NOTE: The RabbitMQ Configuration page is not displayed if any of the following Genetec Inc. software are already installed on the computer: Sipelia™, Genetec Mission Control™, Restricted Security Area Surveillance, Modbus.
  10. On the Installation Wizard Completed page, click Finish.
    IMPORTANT: The Restart Genetec™ Server option is selected by default. You can clear this option if you do not want to restart the Genetec™ Server immediately. However, you must restart the Genetec™ Server to complete the installation.
