This feature provide you to configure the receipt of Trap messages by the host(s) mentioned in the env.properties file on Inventory Collection or Config Fetch failure. This Trap is sent for each device from the RME server whenever the collection does not happen.
The destination IP address to which the traps are to be sent can be configured in the env.properties file. This file is available under this location:
where NMSROOT is the actual CiscoWorks install directory.
