Level 2 support told me to post here as they were unable to help, and they said that the engineers montior these forums…
I’m trying to monitor my EX2, either via email or SNMP.
Email isn’t working, but I know why and that’s because the /etc/smtp.conf file. It connects to:
and if I try to update it, it overwrites upon reboot.
Rule number 1 on preventing spam on networks? All outgoing email runs through your spam filter. This won’t allow me to do that, so I can’t do email notificaitons. Too bad because that would be the best. I even tried doing a cron job that overwrites that conf file, but cron jobs get overwritten as well… .
So I move onto SNMP.
Problem 1. SNMP traps don’t work. I set up a laptop on the same subnet at my EX2, set up a trap listener and pulled a drive to cause a trap to occur.
Setting up the trap notification:
I pulled the drive
No SNMP trap showed up.
The RAID rebuild failed, no trap showed up.
I rebooted the EX2, no trap showed up.
The RAID rebuild started, no trap showed up.
You can see that from the following images:
Did I miss something?
The firewall is off on the machine. Netstat is showing it as listening on a UDP port 162. Where else should I go?
I did try doing SNMP walks, but I don’t know what MIB to be looking for. There is a partial MIB file available to download off of the WD site ( http://support.wd.com/product/download.asp?groupid=906&sid=223&lang=en)) but it doesn’t narrow down the dirve info I’m looking for.
