I hope you have done the required changes in mcxa.conf file. If Yes then just to start with please download two utilities....
Step 1: Now place the Trap watcher at BEM server and run the exe.
The Trap watcher will start listening the SNMP traps. If you see some traps coming from source as your BBSA then your BBSA is fine, you need to check your BEM server only. Please dont worry if you dont understand what is coming in traps
(If there comes any error like "Error to bind the port 162" then please stop SNMP Trap service of windows & the BEM Event Adapter Service(if running) because all there of them Listen the traps on same port 162, So only one can be working at single point of time.)
If you dont see any trap then you need to perform the below step to check if you BEM is working fine or not...
Step 2: Place the SNMP Trap Gen at your BBSA server and try to send some traps to BEM. The SNMP Trap watcher should listen thoes traps, if not then check if ports are open at firewall. If yes then please close the SNMP Trap watcher and start the BEM Event Adapter Service and again send the trap from BBSA using SNMP Trap Gen.
Hope this will help you in fnding where is the problem.....
