The problem I had with the Enterasys is that I already have syslog setup to send to the NPM server, but these traps never make it to the syslog. After doing some research on Orion it seems that it doesnt really convert from SNMP to syslog, unless you can grab the trap using the Alert Manager and after its triggered forward it on to syslog. The problem I have is that the Alert Manager is not that customizable for SNMP traps.
I did come up with a solution to my problem. Solarwinds makes a free tool called "Log Forwarder for Windows" that will forward entries in the windows event log to a syslog server.
Therefore, by using the Trap View (comes with Orion) i setup a new rule that would forward the trap to the windows event log, and then using the Log Forwarder I shoot the message out to the syslog server.
I know its a little crude but it does work, and really its only one extra step to get it out to syslog.
Awesome, thanks for posting it.
