SNMP SERVER



  • Are the Juniper Switches and routers only able to be a passive agent to another vendor’s Network management Station (NMS)? Or can they proactively send traps on their own volition. I do not see any place in the JunOS hierarchy where you can put the NMS ip address as you can under snmp-server keyword in CISCO device.
    Is it more of a one-sided relationship in Juniper Devices?
    i.e. they can only be polled from another vendors NMS.

    The list of traps seems much smaller than on a Cisco device. It this the general situation?

    THANKS MUCH
    I really appreciate it!
    thanks for having this forum!

  • After being gone for a year I am going to answer my own question.

    Yes, it is the target address in the snmp configuration.

    trap-group MM-traps {
        version v2;
        destination-port 155;
        categories {
            authentication;
            chassis;
            link;
            remote-operations;
            routing;
            startup;
            rmon-alarm;
            vrrp-events;
            configuration;
            services;
            sonet-alarms;
        }
        targets {
            10.0.0.19;          <<<<<<–----------- 
        }
    }
    trap-group authentication-traps {
        categories {
            authentication;
            chassis;
            link;
            remote-operations;
            routing;
            startup;
            rmon-alarm;
            vrrp-events;
            configuration;
            services;
            sonet-alarms;
        }
        targets {
            10.0.0.19;    <<<<<<<<<--------------------- 😉
        }
    }
