Troubleshooting

SBC Edge supports SNMPv2c and SNMPv3, using the standard port 161. The SCOM Management Pack (MP) is related to the discovery of the SBC by mapping the object identifiers (OID's) to various components in the SCOM object model. Once the Management Pack is downloaded and imported into SCOM, the SNMP management address has to be created in the SBC. 

To troubleshoot issues, use a MIB browser tool to perform SNMP walks from the SCOM host computer. If the walks are working then there should not be a network connectivity issue and the issue can be narrowed down to SCOM configuration (e.g.: community) or an issue related to the MP import. If they are not working, then there would be a network issue, or a SBC target address configuration issue.

 

The Ribbon SBC Edge SCOM Pack works through SNMP. Refer to Working with SNMP and Alarms for details.
