Description Sarvesh Pandit 2015-10-01 17:35:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, SNMPv2 is the only trap type RHEV-M will send. Request for Enhancement. Add a new feature to RHEV-M. Ability to send SNMPv3 traps in addition to SNMPv2 traps.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEV 3.5.4

- What is the nature and description of the request?
Request for Enhancement. Add a new feature to RHEV-M. Ability to send SNMPv3 traps in addition to SNMPv2 traps.

- Why do you need this? (List the business requirements here)

Customer has security requirements that all SNMP traffic be SNMPv3. At the moment, the RHEV-M system only sends traps via SNMPv2. This is a government contract and this requirement was passed on to us Engineers.
 - How would you like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)

In a similar way as to how SNMP traps are configured now in RHEV-M, v3.5.4.  https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.5/html/Administration_Guide/Configuring_the_Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization_Manager_to_Send_SNMP_Traps.html

- Do you have any specific time-line dependencies?

Our timeline need is asap. This program will go live within the next 6 months and the sooner this feature is available, the sooner we can navigate the paperwork for the upgrade approval. 

- List any affected packages or components.

According to the documentation, this appears to be a change to the ovirt-engine-notifier component of RHEV. 

- Would you be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?

- For each functional requirement listed in the previous question, can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.

Not sure I understand this sentence. There is only one functionality requested here and yes, we will test it.
