    How to uniquely identify the IP address of a node within a MoM for traps received from NPM?

    mussher

      When Orion NPM sends an SNMP trap to a north bound SNMP trap receiver or MoM (Manager of Managers) such as HP OM in our case, the source address of the packet is populated with the IP of the Solarwinds Orion server. As such the MoM cannot uniqely identify the end node that generated the trap. Has anyone come across this scenario and have a solution or workaround?

      One work around we are pursuing is to have the trap re-issued to the MoM using Kiwi tools which will form a SNMP Trap packet with the source address from the IP address varbind that was in the trap from NPM.
