I have been attempting to configure alerts in DFM to notify myself when SnapMirror transfers are not transferring. There are multiple options for SnapMirror alerts:
1. SnapMirror: Possible Problem
2. SnapMirror: Unknown State
3. SnapMirror: Not Working
4. SnapMirror: Not Scheduled
The options above are the ones I have configured and the one's below for obvious reasons are the one's I have not:
5. SnapMirror: Off
6. SnapMirror: Working
I set up two test volumes (SnapMirrored) and deliberately made the source volume larger than the destination so the transfer would fail. I also have global alerts set up for "Volume Almost Full" and "Volume Full" and received these alerts but nothing related to SnapMirror. If anyone has alerts similar to this that are functional or if I'm missing something basic here please chime in and set me straight...

You should either have BCO licensed ( Disater Recovery Manager and Backup Manager feature enabled) or Protection Manager licensed.
But why dont you try these or the corresponding filer traps from the filer itself if you dont have these features licensed in DFM.

I have the same situation before. You must have the Protection ManagerProtection Manager DR licenses installed before you can get the snapmirror alerts.

Thanks for the suggestion!
I'm not too familiar with SNMP traps, etc... If there are other ways to achieve the desired result I'm all for it so please provide any information you could...
