Device Fault Manager - Authentication Failure Traps

Unanswered Question

I'm using DFM to view traps from several Cisco 2960G switches, I am regularly seeing "Authentication Failure" traps from these devices. I suspect that there is another device/server SNMP polling these switches.

The traps in DFM do not display much information apart from "authentication failure" Is there a way of viewing more detailed information from these traps, it would be very useful to find out the IP address of the device that is causing these traps, any ideas?

Thanks in anticipation.

Unfortunately, DFM doesn't provide this. You would need to have DFM (or the device) forward the traps to a general purpose trap receiver (e.g. HPOV NNM, Cisco Info Center, net-snmp's snmptrapd, etc.).
