Question

How do I ensure that I receive alarms in Network Director?

Answer

If you enable alarms, Network Director notifies you of unexpected, significant events happening in your network by displaying alarms that represent these events. To enable alarms:

  • Ensure that port 10162 is open between the Junos Space appliance and the managed device. Network Director uses this port to receive SNMP notifications, or traps, from the devices.
  • Use the Set SNMP Trap Configuration task in Deploy mode to configure your devices to send traps to Network Director.
  • Ensure that the alarms relevant to you are enabled in the Fault tab under Preferences.

You can learn more about enabling SNMP categories and setting trap destinations and setting up user and system preferences in Network Director from the Network Director user documentation or online Help.
