Notifications via SNMP Trap

SNMP (Simple Network Management protocol) is a simple and wide spread management protocol suitable for monitoring and identifying network problems. One of the operations of this protocol is TRAP, which sends specific data. In ERA, we use TRAP to send notification messages to SNMP.

Notifications can be viewed in the SNMP manager, which must be connected to an SNMP server where the configuration file eset_ras.mib is imported. The file is a standard component of an installation of ERA, and is usually located in the "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Remote Administrator\Server\" folder.

NOTE: For notifications to work, both the SNMP Service and SNMP TRAP  services must be running in the Windows operating system hosting the ERA Server. Additionally, you must have software that can read and display SNMP TRAP information running.

For Windows 2000

In order for the TRAP tool to run effectively, the SNMP protocol must be installed and configured on the same computer as ERAS. You can add the SNMP protocol under Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove programs > Add/Remove Windows Components. The SNMP service should be configured as described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315154. In ERAS, you must activate an SNMP notification rule.
