Windows Vista/2003/2000/XP service. The server provides a central address for event reporting. It passes traps to Avaya Network Management Console for display in the Event Log

Browser. For more information about event handling and traps, refer to What is Event

Handling on page 18.

Issue 7 January 2008 15

Avaya Network Management

In addition, Avaya Network Management Server enables you to operate Avaya Network

Management Console from a remote location. This feature provides a method for managing your network from any computer connected to the Internet. By pointing your web browser to

Avaya Network Management Server’s IP address, you can access Avaya Network

Management Console and manage your network. For more information on running Avaya

Network Management Console from a remote location, refer to

Starting Avaya Network

Management Console on page 26.

What is Avaya Network Management Console

Avaya Network Management Console is the user interface to Avaya Network Management

Server. It receives information from Avaya Network Management Server and sends the server information input by the user. Avaya Network Management Console displays the devices in the current Network Map using a hierarchical tree. The tree can be organized by subnet or device type, or logically by voice system hierarchy. Additionally, you can create custom views of the network.

When a device in the Network Tree is selected, information about the selected device appears in the Network Table. You can then modify the device’s parameters. Avaya Network

Management Console also provides the ability to launch applications that communicate directly

16 Avaya Integrated Management Release 5.0 Network Management Console

What is a Network Map

with the device. These applications allow you to manage the device via its Command Line

Interface (CLI) or Device Manager, and monitor the traffic on the device. For example, if you select an Avaya G350 Device in the Network Table, you can launch Telnet to configure the device via its CLI, or launch Avaya G350 Device Manager to configure and monitor the device via its management application. In addition, Avaya Network Management Console allows you to launch network-wide applications such as, Avaya Software Update Manager for updating embedded software.

What is a Network Map

A Network Map consists of all of the devices known to Avaya Network Management Server, their physical connectivity to ports, and their relationship in the voice hierarchy. The list of devices is stored in the database, along with basic information about each device. When

Avaya Network Management Console opens, Avaya Network Management Server extracts information about the devices in the Network Map from the database. These devices are displayed in the Network Tree.

Devices can be added to the current Network Map using Discovery or the Add Device dialog box. Devices in the Network Map can also be modified. All changes to the Network Map are stored in the database.

You can maintain multiple Network Maps by saving individual maps with unique names. The

Network Map whose devices are visible in Avaya Network Management Console is the current

Network Map.

Note:

Note:

Changing the map affects all open network-wide applications.

You can also create a text file that contains the necessary information about each device you want to add to the current Network Map and import the devices listed in the file into the Network

Map. For more information on importing devices into the Network Map, refer to Importing

Devices into the Network Map on page 95.

Avaya Network Management Server can also export the information in the current Network Map to a CSV file. For more information on exporting the device information from the current

Network Map, refer to

Exporting the Network Map on page 95.

Issue 7 January 2008 17

Avaya Network Management

What is Discovery

Avaya Network Management uses Discovery to detect or ’discover’ your network. The

Discovery tool discovers subnets and nodes, the physical port location of the devices, the

Avaya VoIP hierarchy, phone information and phone locations for IP, analog and digital phones.

The Discovery tool uses SNMP MIB-II on network nodes to search your network. In addition, you can instruct Discovery to use ICMP Echo (ping) to search the network. You can instruct

Discovery to search your entire network, limit the search to selected subnets, or update information about the objects in the Network View.

The Discovery window displays the results of your search. You can apply the results of a

Discovery to the current Network Map.

What is Event Handling

Events are unexpected or extraordinary occurrences in your network. Examples of events include the loss of a port’s connection, the insertion or removal of a module from a device, and the failure of a fan or power supply. Network Management provides a method of reporting network events.

Note:

Note:

For the purposes of this document, the terms ‘event’ and ‘trap’ are used interchangeably.

Network Management communicates with device agents using SNMP. Device agents can send traps to Avaya Network Management Server reporting on the status of their ports, modules, etc.

The server then passes traps to the relevant managers of the device involved and updates the

Event Manager.

To receive traps using Avaya Network Management, network devices must be configured to send traps to the Avaya Network Management Server. For information on configuring Avaya

LAN and backbone devices to send traps to Avaya Network Management Server, refer to the

User Guide or Device Manager User Guide for the devices in your network. The Event Manager maintains a log of all traps received from the devices in the network. These traps can be viewed in the Event Log Browser.

Traps are categorized by their severity. Some traps report events that are not problems. An example of this type of trap is the insertion of a module into a device. These traps have a severity level of Info. Other traps require more attention, such as the loss of a regular port’s connection. Traps of this type have a severity level of Warning. Finally, there are traps, such as the failure of a backbone link, which require immediate attention. These traps have a severity level of Minor, Major, or Critical.

Issue 7 January 2008 19

Avaya Network Management

Figure 4: Event Log Browser

The Event Manager displays all of the traps sent by Avaya Network Management Server. In the

Event Manager you can:

Sort the Event Log Browser by any of its fields.

Filter the traps displayed and change the severity of selected traps.

Acknowledge traps to help you remember which traps you have already seen.

Define the format of the description field.

Delete traps, signifying that the problem causing the trap was resolved.

In addition, the Event Manager allows you to define event actions. Event actions can include notification via a pop-up, audible, or e-mail message or the running of a script. Actions can be assigned to any network events. You can also limit the action to events from specified sources.

This feature enables you to receive immediate notification of important network events.

The Event Manager can also act as a trap surrogate, forwarding all, or selected, traps to other devices.

If the console with read/write permission agrees to the request, or does not refuse the request in the allotted amount of time, the read/write permission is transferred to the requesting console automatically.

For instructions on setting the Timeout value, see

Setting Read/Write Defaults on page 43.

All functionality is supported for a console with read/write permission. This is true whether you are running Avaya Network Management Console locally or remotely.

All functions that update the server (i.e., adding and removing a device from the map, or running a discovery process) are disabled on a console with read only permission and all update commands are inactive. If an update dialog box is open while the console is losing write permission, the Apply button of the dialog box becomes inactive until write permission is returned. This also applies to the trap manager.

A console with an open discovery window automatically retains its write permission. Any requests for write permission from a console with an open discovery window are automatically denied.

SNMP Access Parameters

Using the SNMP Access parameters page of the Avaya Network Management Console Options dialog box, you can set basic SNMP parameters for specific devices, ranges of devices, and all unspecified devices. Avaya Network Management Server recognizes the following SNMP protocols: V1 and V3. SNMP access parameters for SNMP V1 include read and write community properties. For SNMP V3, the SNMP access parameters include a user name defined in Avaya Secure Access Administration. For both versions of SNMP, access parameters include timeout and retry values. Each of the three tabs in the SNMP Access parameters page enables you to set SNMP access parameters for different groups of devices.

Default

- To configure all devices with IP addresses not included in the other tabs.

IP Wildcards

- To configure SNMP access parameters for devices whose IP addresses fall in a specified range and not in the Specific IP’s tab.

Specific IP’s

- To configure SNMP access parameters for specific devices.

When polling a device, Avaya Network Management Server uses the device’s SNMP access parameters. The server first checks the Specific IP’s list. If the device is listed in the Specific IP’s list, the SNMP access parameters for the specific device are used. If not, the server checks the

IP Wildcards list. If the device’s IP address is in any of the ranges listed in the IP Wildcards list, the SNMP access parameters for the matching range are used. If the device’s IP address does not match any of the ranges in the IP Wildcards list, the default SNMP access parameters are used.

Default SNMP Access Parameters

The Default page enables you to configure multiple default SNMP communities.

If no Specific IP definition and IP Wildcards match the IP address to be polled, Avaya Network

Management Server tests the addresses of the devices against the list of definitions in the

Default list. The order of the list in the table is important, because the SNMP access parameters of the first rule in the list that matches a device’s SNMP access parameters are used for that device.

To view the list of default SNMP access parameters, click the Default tab on the SNMP Access page of the Options dialog box. The Default page appears.

Setting SNMP Access Parameters for IP Ranges

The IP Wildcard page enables you to configure SNMP access parameters for ranges of devices. Avaya Network Management Server tests the IP address of devices to poll against the list of devices in the IP Wildcards list. If the IP address matches a range, the server uses the range’s SNMP access parameters when polling the device. The order in the list is important, because the SNMP access parameters of the first range in the list that matches a device’s IP address are used for that device.

To view SNMP access parameters for IP ranges, click the IP Wildcard tab on the SNMP Access page of the Avaya Network Management Console Options dialog box. The IP Wildcard page appears.

Configuring Event Forwarding

Event forwarding enables events to be posted to devices further up the network hierarchy. This is useful, because it minimizes the need to configure multiple event recipients on the device level. Instead, events from multiple devices can be forwarded to a single network device from which the events can be sent to multiple recipients. In addition, you can forward all events or only specific events.

The following topics are described in this section:

Event Forwarding Sources
