SNMP in Multi-Homed Environment

Trap listener, Inform listener and all outbound SNMP requests must bind to a specific interface in a multi-homed environment. This interface is considered appropriate to use for all network-facing SNMP activity. By default, this is localhost, interpreted as the application's local IP value (the NIC selected at installation time). The following text in installed.properties provides a specific IP address to control outbound SNMP interface binding on the local machine:

# specific interface used for all NMS initated

# communications to the network

com.dorado.mediation.outbound.address=localhost

Include the following text and provide a specific IP address to control inbound (listener) interface binding on the local machine:

#

# specific interface used for binding mediation

# listeners such as SNMP trap listener

com.dorado.mediation.listener.address=localhost

Events with no corresponding definition appear as alarms of indeterminate severity. The only way to change behavior of an unknown event in this version would be to locate the missing MIB and load it into the system. This creates the missing event definition(s) needed to specify explicit behaviors.
