Fabric Watch Events

Hi,

I've set up Fabric Watch on a number of switches; events are being generated and I can see them in the Syslog on the DCFM server. Is there any way to get the same events in to the DCFM master log? Is it even possible?

Hi Chris,

yes it's possible, you have to configure swEventTrap  to "Yes" by using snmpconfig --set mibcapability

myswitch:admin> snmpconfig --show mibcapability

FE-MIB:YES
SW-MIB: YES
FA-MIB: YES
FICON-MIB: YES
HA-MIB: YES
FCIP-MIB: YES
ISCSI-MIB: YES
SW-TRAP: YES
   swFCPortScn: NO
  swEventTrap: NO <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
   swFabricWatchTrap: YES
   swTrackChangesTrap: NO
FA-TRAP: NO
SW-EXTTRAP: NO
FICON-TRAP: NO
HA-TRAP: NO
FCIP-TRAP: NO

Kind regards,

Re: Fabric Watch Events

Just a thought - does snmp communication between the switch and the DCFM server need to be set up?

Each switch is set with the DCFM server as a trap destination. It is also set up to automatically register as a Syslog destination

Re: Fabric Watch Events

Good thought ! It should be set up automatically when adding your switch in DCFM. To be sure use snmpconfig --show snmpv1|snmpv3 depending of which snmp you are using. You should find DCFM server IP in rw Community 1 (snmpv1). Severity should be 4.

Hope this helps

Kind regards,

Re: Fabric Watch Events

You may also configure desired severity in snmpconfig --set mibcapability - I don't know what "None" stands for  ... all alerts or no alerts ?

Kind regards,
