CiscoWorks LMS: not receveing certain SNMP traps

CiscoWorks LMS 4.0.1 (I know it's old and unsupported).

 

Problem: not receiving certain SNMP traps.

For example: I receive trap like "STP new root" but not like "port put to err-disabled" or my custom traps (produced by EEM scripts).

I've investigated my situation and found out that switch sends traps and they reach* LMS but somehow LMS ignores them (there's no trace of them in GUI). I've read that some traps just pass through LMS but my traps are very important and I need to know about them.

 

* I did Wireshark capture on LMS machine.

 

I'd like to know how to debug receiving of SNMP traps in LMS:

  1. which specific debugs need to be enabled,
  2. which specific log files need to be examined.

LMS uses DFM to process certain traps.

All traps it deems unimportant are dropped.

 

If you want to use the LMS GUI you can have you device send a SYSLOG message rather than a trap.

use logging source command to make the management interface send the message.

 

Then there is a GUI that allows you to launch an action on a message

 

Cheers,

Michel
