Setting SNMP Options

Note: SNMP (Simple Network Messaging Protocol) capability is available in the AutoMate Enterprise Edition only.

SNMP default options are set when your system is installed. They can be changed through the Task Administrator Options dialog.

To set SNMP options:

  1. From the System menu in the Task Administrator , select Options.

  2. Click the SNMP tab (shown below).

  1. Enter or change the properties as follows:

MIB files location

A directory where the MIB files are located. Only files with an extension of .mib are parsed. The SNMP actions use these MIB files to translate object names and identifiers to their numeric counterparts. By default AutoMate looks first in the Windows System32 folder. If MIB files that will be used by your tasks are stored in another location, enter the location here.

Listen to traps on local port

The port number that AutoMate will use to listen for traps using the SNMP Trap Watcher trigger. Set this to something other than the default if you already have an SNMP manager installed on your system. Note, however, that if this port is changed, the SNMP agent must be notified of the proper port in order for AutoMate to capture the trap event.
