Getting SNMP Traps: Data ONTAP PowerShell Toolkit 3.0: (1) usage: :00000020::::::00000100:::::::::::::::::::::::


I am using the latest PowerShell Toolkit (3.0).

Created a few report to get information on Snapmirrors and Volume sizes.

I am randomly getting SNMP messages on one or two filers when running these scripts. This is very strange because I get the messages from different filers each day (not consistent). Any ideas?

We get these messages from our HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM).

Mib Information

The associated MIB File Name for this trap is netapp.mib and the MIB identifier NETWORK-APPLIANCE-MIB



You will see the a similar message if you watch the console while connecting to a filer with Connect-NAController. It is my understanding that this is just ZAPI acknowledging that a connection has been made, and is a normal occurrence.
