I am trying to set up the email address of the SNMP.

i can set up the Server SNMP Agents and the trap destinations, but can't find where to specifiy the SMTP Server Name i.e our company email address name

I looked in security realms can't find it.

Any ideas

    Here is sample setup for AIX machine.


    GC agent installed in AGENT_ORACLE_HOME
    RDBMS installed in RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME
    Database and listener up and running, monitored by Grid Control,
    this implies that the AGENT_ORACLE_HOME/sysman/emd/targets.xml contains the correct credentials for the database.
    The listener name given ion RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/listener.ora is identical to the name of that listener target in Grid Control.
    AGENT_ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/sqlnet.ora must exist.

    SETUP steps needed for operating system AIX:

    A. AIX is using its native snmp deamon pointing to the snmpdv3 deamon (this is the default on AIX5L):
    [hostname]/root> ls -l /usr/sbin/snmpd
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root system 9 Jul 24 2009 /usr/sbin/snmpd@ -> snmpdv3ne*

    B. The script AGENT_ORACLE_HOME/network/snmp/peer/start_peer has needs to be corrected on AIX :
    1. the locations of "whoami" needs to be corrected from "/usr/ucb/whoami" to "/bin/whoami"
    2. the command starting the os snmp deamon must be changed to

    $SNMPD $SNMPD_OPTIONS -p $NEW_SNMPD_PORT >snmpd.out 2>&1 &

    Alternatively add two blocks for operating system AIX:

    elif [ "$uname" = "AIX" ] ; then
    TRPCMD="exit 1"
    ENCAP_OPT="-s 1160"

    elif [ "$uname" = "AIX" ]
    echo "Starting $SNMPD ..."
    echo "$SNMPD $SNMPD_OPTIONS -p $NEW_SNMPD_PORT >snmpd.out 2>&1 &"
    $SNMPD $SNMPD_OPTIONS -p $NEW_SNMPD_PORT >snmpd.out 2>&1 &

    Starting up emsubagent

    None of the following processes must be upp and running: snmpd, emsubagent, master_peer, encaps_peer
    The following ports must not be allocated: snmp, smux, 161, 1161, 199
    run as root:

    ORACLE_HOME= <full path to the AGENT_ORACLE_HOME>
    export ORACLE_HOME
    $ORACLE_HOME/network/snmp/peer/start_peer -a

    This must start the following processes as root: master_peer, encaps_peer, snmpd

    As agent ORACLE_HOME owner run

    AGENT_ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl start subagent

    The snmp_*.ora files needs to be copied from AGENT_ORACLE_HOME/network/admin to RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/network/admin
    Restart the listener, query the listener status
    "RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl status <listener_name>" must show: SNMP ON
