The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows a polling workstation or trap server to obtain data about devices on the network. This may include the almost real-time status of services, server functionality, and the security and service settings on the device. Address Manager DNS/DHCP Server appliances can behave as managed devices on an SNMP- enabled network. Address Manager DNS/DHCP Server includes SNMP for both the appliance itself and for the on-board application server.
When you first install an Address Manager DNS/DHCP Server or appliance, the SNMP service isn't configured. You need to configure the SNMP parameters before you enable the SNMP service. For details on enabling SNMP, refer to Enabling SNMP Trap Service.
BlueCat appliances support all of the MIB-II SNMP standard objects. BlueCat also provides MIB files for Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server objects. For more information on the BlueCat MIB files, refer to BlueCat MIB files.
SNMP must be configured and enabled to use the Address Manager Monitoring Service. For information on configuring the Address Manager Monitoring Service, refer to Monitoring Address Manager. For information on viewing Address Manager server metrics, refer to Viewing general system information.
