In-order to change the status of the icon you created on the map, you must
create a ruleset to look for the specific event  and have the ruleset
execute the status change using the snmptrap via the 589168711 trap
specific.  An example of a Korn shell script is provided below.


set -x
NAME=$1             #  Name of Icon
STATE=$2       #  Up, Down, Unknown, User1, or User2
HOSTNAME=$3     #  Name of NetView Machine

/usr/OV/bin/snmptrap $HOSTNAME . \
$HOSTNAME 6 58916871 1 \
. Integer 14 \
. OctetString $NAME \
. OctetString "$NAME report status" \
. OctetString $STATE

Subject:  Status events

Hi all

I am running Netview/AIX

I have encountered a problem with the event configuration. I discovered
a NT machine
and I have configured specific events to make the status make the icon
red or green,
I specified enterprise Specific 1 (application down) status event, down
, critical
because if the application is down it must go red on the map.
The event card comes up red but the icon does not change colour , so I
ran a sent snmp trap(netview Diagnose) and it also does not go red.
How do I get Netview to change colours on the map?
