host name for snmp trap

Is there any way of resolving a 2950 snmp trap to a host name instead of an ip address, ...if possible, where and how is this done?

Thanks!

Re: host name for snmp trap

Hello,

do you mean the ´snmp-server host´ command followed by a name instead of an IP address ? That is:

snmp-server host 192.168.1.1

should be

snmp-server host SNMP_SERVER

?

You could add a local ´ip host´ statement to your router:

ip host 192.168.1.1 SNMP_SERVER

Is that what you are asking ?

Regards,

GP

Re: host name for snmp trap

The failover switch pair i'm using send a snmp trap to a snmp server when one of the switches fail, ...the error sent to the snmp server indicates a failing ip address not a switch name, ...is there any way to resolve this ip address to the appropriate switch name as part ot the error message sent to the host?

Thanks again!
