- Alerts that have node/interface as their source are alerts that are generated directly in SCOM based on predefined rules. On the other hand alerts that have as a source NPM server are imported from NPM. This means that if you create a new alert rule in NPM, alerts triggered by this rule should be imported to SCOM. Unfortunately for the imported alerts there is currently no way how to get them to show correct node/interface as alert source. We are already tracking a feature request in our internal tracking system for this functionality.
- SNMP Trap alerts are processed differently from NPM alerts. Currently SolarWinds SCOM MP doesn't support import of these alerts into SCOM from NPM.
Thank you for your answer, I have been trying to put together a PoC based on adding scom with NPM and have ran into some strange issues in a test environment.
