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
