How to disable SNMP traps set by Storage Replication Adapter and VASA Provider

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Storage Replication Adapter
  • NetApp VASA Provider for OTAP


The FAS/V-Series Storage Replication Adapter (SRA) and VASA Provider (VP) service sets SNMP traps for the purpose of triggering storage discovery whenever a trap is fired for the following events:

  • Volume move
  • New volume
  • Aggregate relocation
  • Takeover/giveback [Failover monitoring]
  • LUN operations

This allows the service to keep a constant and accurate inventory of storage objects in the ONTAP cluster.

SRA by default will:

  • Run a periodic rediscovery
  • Will also run an automatic discovery whenever the administrator triggers a failover or testfailover

You may disable setting SNMP traps if you do not desire them, or if your environment does not support it.

Note: If you enable FIPS mode on an ONTAP Cluster, this will disable SNMP support.  Additionally:

  • Any VASA or SRA actions will fail with the following error message:

"Error - StorageFault: Failed to create SNMPv1 traphost "xxxxxxx". Reason: Cluster FIPS mode is enabled (errno=40203)".

  • You will need to disable SNMP traps using the steps in this KB to resolve the issue.
