This section details enabling SNMP polling on the management nodes from the poller agent assigned to poll LeftHand devices. Once enabled, the SNMP data will appear within the LeftHand device console screen.

Centralized Management Console (CMC) structure

To begin you need to drill down in the cluster to locate a management node.


Find a management node

To find a management node for a specific cluster.

  1. Click on the node, and then check the Status on the Details tab.
  2. If the status reads Manager Normal then it is a management node.


Enabling SNMP:

SNMP must be enabled to allow the respective SRM Profiler proxy agent to access the information. After adding permissions to one node you will then need to copy these permissions to the rest of the nodes.

To check if SNMP is enabled:

  1. Click the SNMP icon below one of the nodes.
  2. Check that Agent Status is enabled on the SNMP General tab.
  3. If SNMP is not enabled, use Edit SNMP Settings to enable it.


To find the Community String:

  1. Click the SNMP icon below one of the nodes.
  2. Check the Community String. If it is different than public make sure this is reflected within SRM Profiler.
  3. If the Community String needs to be changed see Edit SNMP Settings below for steps.

Community Strings are CASE sensitive and need to reflect their case sensitivity in SRM Profiler as well.


To check if SRM Profiler proxy agent is in Access Control list:

Check the Access Control list and see if the SRM Profiler proxy agent's IP address is in the list. If not, it will need to be added. To do so, see Edit SNMP Settings below.


Edit SNMP Settings:

Near the bottom of the CMC screen there is a SNMP General Tasks drop down. From here click Edit SNMP Settings.


From this page you can set SNMP to enabled, change the Community String and add the SRM Profiler proxy agent to the Access Control list.


Add the SRM Profiler proxy agent IP to Access Control list:

From the Edit SNMP Settings page, click Add.


This will bring you to the Add SNMP Client page. From here, click the By Address radio button and add the IP address of the SRM Profiler proxy agent, and then click OK.


The SRM Profiler proxy agent IP should now be in the Access Control list. The last step is to copy these SNMP settings to the rest of the nodes within the cluster. To do this return back to the node page.

From the Node page you can click on the Storage Node Tasks drop down at the bottom of the page and select Copy Configuration.


This will bring up the Copy Configuration box, and from here you can select the SNMP Settings and select the nodes you want to copy the configuration to by checking the checkbox for SNMP Settings (General, Traps) and by selecting the nodes you wish to copy the selected configuration to.


After you click copy the configuration is copied to all the nodes selected. You should now see the SRM Profiler proxy agent IP in each node's Access Control list.
