Managing Trap Server Addresses

Managing Trap Server Addresses

To report alarm messages to specific network management systems or storage devices, add server addresses pertaining to those systems or devices.


  • The SNMP service has been enabled on the storage system. If the service is not enabled, choose Settings > Alarm Settings > SNMP Service and enable the SNMP service.
  • Server has enabled the SNMP service.
  • The USM user has been created.


Trap is a type of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) message that indicates the occurrence of an event. By using the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) protocol, you can send this type of messages which are partially reliable to recipients.

The DeviceManager provides the trap IP function to send the alarm messages of managed storage devices to another network management system or to a device at a specific IP address. If alarm messages are reported in SNMP mode, you must configure Trap IP addresses.

To implement the alarm reporting function based on the Trap IP address, install associated software on application servers. For example, you must install MIB interface software on the application servers running Windows 2003. The software has been compressed to (xxx indicates the VRC of the product. For example, the compressed package of OceanStor 9000 V100R001C30 is You can obtain the compressed package from technical support website.

      Server Address

      Address of a network management system or storage device for receiving alarm messages.

      [Value range]

      • An IPv4 address has the following requirements:
        • The 32-bit address is evenly divided into four fields. Each 8-bit field is expressed in dotted-decimal.
        • Each field of the IP address cannot be blank and must be an integer.
        • The value of the first field ranges from 1 to 223 (excluding 127).
        • The values of other fields range from 0 to 255.
        • The IP address cannot be a special address such as the broadcast address.
      • An IPv6 address has the following requirements:
        • The 128-bit address is evenly divided into eight fields. Each 16-bit field is expressed in hexadecimal and separated with colons.
        • In each 16-bit field, zeros before integers can be removed. However, at least one digit must be reserved in each field.
        • If the IP address contains a long string of zeros, you can represent the neighboring zeros with double colons (::) in the colon-separated hexadecimal field. Each IP address contains only one double-colons (::). The double-colons (::) can also be used to represent neighboring zeros of the IP address.
        • The IP address cannot be a special address such as network address, loop address, or multicast address.
      • The domain name has the following requirements:
        • The domain name contains letters, digits, periods (.), and hyphens (-) and cannot start or end with a hyphen (-).
        • The top domain name cannot contain digits only.
      • The trap IP address needs to be able to communicate with the management network.

      [Example] or fc00::1234 or


      Port for receiving alarm messages on the network management system or storage device.

      [Value range]

      • 162 to 65535 (If Type is Parsed or All.)
      • 1 to 65535 (If Type is Original.)




      SNMP version of a network management system or storage device. The possible value can be SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, or SNMPv3.
      To ensure the data security, you are advised to use SNMPv3.
