Issue/Introduction

Using the hostnames in the trapX.config forward statement to forward the traps to different SpectroSERVER boxes eg.
 
translate_v2c_traps
agentaddr_is_srcaddr_translated_v1
filter * * * * * * forward host1.wob.vwg translate_v3_traps:1:xyz
filter * * * * * * forward host2.wob.vwg translate_v3_traps:1:xyz
filter * * * * * * forward host3.wob.vwg translate_v3_traps:1:xyz
filter * * * * * * forward host4.wob.vwg translate_v3_traps:1:xyz 
 
the traps will be sent to the last hostname (in this case host4.wob.vwg) and in the in the sdmLog.log in debug mode you will see the 4 filters with the IP address of the last hostname.

Environment

Release : 20.2.3

Component : Spectrum Core / SpectroSERVER

Resolution

work-around: use the IP addresses instead of hostnames in trapX.config file forward statements.

Additional Information

Engineering planned to fix this issue in the next Spectrum release that should be released in January 2021
