Environment

  • Cisco ASA

Steps

 

  1. Start Universal Device Poller (UnDP)

  2. Create new poller using following OID(s):
    PRIMARY: 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.147.1.2.1.1.1.3.6 (Primary) This OID will need to be assigned to only the Primary ASA
    SECONDARY: 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.147.1.2.1.1.1.3.7 (Secondary) This OID will need to be assigned to only the Secondary ASA

  3. If the OID's don't work run an SNMP walk on the device and use 1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.147.1.2.1.1.1.3 as a search to figure out what the last value is on the device. 

  4. Universal Device Poller Example should look like this:

 

 

5. Make sure to set SNMP Get Type to GET since default for these OID(s) is GET TABLE

6. When setting up the Alert this is for when the Primary Fails over to Secondary so an Alert will fire:

 

 

7. The value you can see is 10 for Standby per Cisco Documentation above. The OID is also the Custom poller that was created. 

8. If you want to get a reset when the secondary fails over back to the primary you can do this with he reset action email.
