We are using Epicenter 7 (we know EOL for epicenter was awhile ago).
We are managing many deivces. Now we are trying to setup traps with ELRP w/a XOS device.
Everything was setup, we mimicked a loop, but saw no traps via the alarm manager. Then on a ref manual for extreme [EPICenter 7.0 Reference Guide Rev. 03 - Extreme Networks], I found this listed under SNMP traps section.....

ELRP VLAN Loop Detected

Extreme Networks proprietary trap. Generated when the ELRP
client detects a loop in the VLAN.

ExtremeWare 7.3
Not supported in

The device tested is with an XOS device.

ELRP is supported in XOS
This I know.. Let me rephrase it, can Epicenter recognize SNMP ELRP traps via a xos device?

I don.t know. I work with Netsight. I had to add the snmp trap of ELRP in Netsight. Probably you have to do this also in Epicenter

Does this get added somewhere to cause the trap to be triggered if the event occurs?

Yes, It has to be added somewhere so that Epicenter know what to do if it receive this event.
