WDS1030 snmp traps to an NMS.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to ask the following questions, but here it goes...

As part of a wireless pilot project we have installed 50 access points (Cisco aironet 1231G) in a couple of buildings. The real project once approved could scale to over a 1000 units. We are also trying a Cisco WDS1030 with the WLSE management tool. The WLSE seems to be a good configuration and troubleshooting tool. To keep things simple for our computer center operators we would like to send the traps we configure in WLSE to our Netview server as snmptraps to be displayed as alarms. Sending the traps is simple, but which would be the right procedure to correlate these traps in Netview??? I don’t want to just read the trapd.log and react on the information there, instead I would like to have more flexibility by using the correlation facilities from Netview which is the way we are alarming on snmptraps send by different type of devices with network connectivity (ups, environmental units, sensors, switches, servers, routers, etc)

I like the centralized approach of using WDS devices to monitor several access points at once and send snmptraps from just a device instead of 50 access points.

In summary I would like to know:

Which snmp mibs/traps need to be loaded in Netview to process the traps sent by the WDS unit???

Once I load the traps, I guess I can correlate based on the trap ID the same way I’m correlating other traps.

If there is no a particular mib/trap ID for the traps sent by the WDS, How can I then correlate them once the reach the Netview server????

If someone is doing something similar, please send me a note.

Thanks for any information.

Re: WDS1030 snmp traps to an NMS.


I am not sure if this will result in a workable decode for the traps sent by the WLSE as it sends it all with the same OID.

We are also currently investigating the usability of WLSE traps in a NMS (HP Openview 7.5).

We receive the traps but decoding them, we still cannot.

If someone has experience with this, I am really interested.
