SNMP Trap not received in SCOM

ANU 336 Reputation points

SCOM 2016 UR9 environment.

I configured to receive alerts from SNMP traps. Unfortunately traps are not received in SCOM.

I followed Kevin blog.

The device is discovered and visible in network devices with access mode SNMP
I can see traps coming in on the server with Wireshark and the right community name from the right IP address.

Created a new SNMP event Rule to capture all the SNMP events and created an event View aswell.

I do see that the device was discovered via SNMP v2c. Removed the <version> tagline from the trap rule.

The out of the box inbound for SNMP traps were enabled. "Operations Manager SNMP Trap Listener" Inbound rule which is enabled.
Still no traps are visible at SCOM End. Can anybody help me.

    Hi @ANU ,

    can you please check the listener (Screenshot) as stated here:

    SCOM 2012 and SNMP Traps

    and also the solutions (SNMP version mismatch) and verify this on your end.

    Can you please also make sure that the WMI SNMP Provider is installed as suggested here:


    You can catch the SNMP raps using WMi queries also.

    Are there any related events in the event logs of the management servers, which are part of the Network Monitoring Resource Pool?
