Enable SNMP Monitoring in SCOM

You can set up SolarWinds DPA to use SNMP to monitor System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).

  1. In the DPA menu bar, click Options.
  2. Under Administration > Users & Contacts, click Contact Management.
  3. Click Create SNMP Contact.
  4. Enter the SCOM host IP address and port in the Trap Receiver fields. The default port is 162.
  5. Enter the community string that was set up on the SNMP Service on the SCOM host.

    This string is case sensitive.

  6. On the SolarWinds DPA server, make sure the SNMP service is running and the community string set matches the string you entered in the SNMP Contact window.
