Issue:
How to configure the Network Management Card and PowerChute Agent to be discovered and managed by Solarwinds Orion Network Performance Management (NPM)

Product Line:
PowerChute Serial Shutdown
PowerChute Business Edition
Network Management Card

Environment:
Solarwinds Orion Network Performance Management (NPM)

Cause:
Informational

Solution:

Orion NPM is a network monitoring application. It delivers real-time views that enable you to track network performance visually. It ships with the APC PowerNet MIB preloaded. Some configuration is required on the APC Network Management Card (NMC) and PowerChute to manage them through SNMP with OrionNPM.

Network Management Card:

SMNPv1 Access is enabled by default - found in Administration-Network-SNMPv1-access. This allows the NMC to be discovered out of the box by NPM. To allow traps/alarms to be received by NPM, go to the NMC - Administration - Notification - SNMP Traps - Trap Receivers - Add Trap Receiver and add the IP address of the machine running NPM.
