Specify Snmp source interface for traps and logs


we have a pair of extreme BD8810 in which we use an inband for OAM vlan purposes. Some how after we did configure the snmp receivers the snmp traps are not getting to the NMS. I wonder if this is related to the fact that these are all being sent via the physical mgmnt interface which we are not using. If so, is there anyway to configure the sending of the traps via another interface (the inband one), which is the one used for ssh for example?

Thanks in advance.

You can define what ip and vr to send traps from when you set up trap receiver

configure snmp add trapreceiver x.x.x.x community (whatever) from x.x.x.x vr (vr where ip is)
Thanks a lot EtherMan, right to the point. will test this tomorrow.
