About SNMP on the Application Server

SNMP versions 1, 2c, and 3 are supported.

All standard MIB II queries and a set of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace MIB traps are supported.

The MIB II queries include the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server name, location, contact name, and statistics regarding the network interface.

Traps are used to report events. See Table 1.

Each major and minor software notification includes an integer exception code and indicates which software module and server reported the alarm. Normally, each alarm instance generates a separate notification. In some cases, however, one specific incident could trigger multiple types of alarms.

This topic applies only to the Application Server.

Before You Begin

See the "Requirements for SNMP on the Application Server" section.

Restrictions

Do not disable the default community string, which is called meetingplace-public. Doing so will cause the Application Server to give an SNMP "authentication failure" trap every second.

Procedure


Step 1 Sign in to the Administration Center.

Step 2 Select Maintenance > SNMP > Community Strings.

Step 3 Select Add New or select an existing entry.

Step 4 Enter or change values in the fields.

Step 5 Select Save.

Procedure


Step 1 Sign in to the Administration Center.

Step 2 Select Maintenance > SNMP > Notification Destinations.

Step 3 Select Add New or select an existing entry.

Step 4 Enter or change the values in the fields.
