vCenter 6.7 U1 doesn't send any SNMP trap

I want to get traps from vCenter for some alerts.

I configured snmp from the CLI as it doesn't look to be possible from the web GUI

If I start a tcpdump on both my SNMP server and vCenter, I can see the packets

I have configured a test alarm, triggered when a VM is started (pretty easy).

When I start the VM, I can see in the events :

However, I don't get any trap on my server, and I don't see any traffic going out the appliance to the server:162

Any idea ?

There's one more place to define SNMP receivers. Maybe SNMP traps generated by Actions are using those:

In the vSphere Client, navigate to the vCenter Server instance, Configure > Settings > General > Edit > SNMP receivers

as documented here Configure SNMP Settings

Hico,

I tried it first, but didn't work.

I has a webex with VMware's support last week, waiting for a feedback / fix
