Thanks Jane,
/var/adm/smv2/log/smMlmCurrent.config has been updated so I guess it must be
my trap filters arent set correctly. 
I have done a trap filter for netview traps which is . and
set up a generic trap 1001 (this is also configured on netview server) and a
generic value of 6.
If I send this trap to the mlm from the netview server and refresh the trapd
log on the mlm it shows as being captured. It doesnt however forward the
trap to netview server?
Dont know why its not forwarding this trap.

thankyou Arthur

Have you configured the APM (C5d)?  You will need to do this before you get
MLM collection icon.  Set up APM either via smit or the Tivoli Desktop -
off the Configure menu.  You don't expect an MLM to go in the NetView's
collection but to go into the MLM's collection.

Just a tiny one - are you sure that you have "Enabled" this setting - it's
easy to setup all the details but leave the enabled/disabled box "Disabled".

By default, the config file that the MLM will use is
/var/adm/smv2/log/smMlmCurrent.config - if this hasn't been updated then I'd
start checking SNMP community names.  All your MLM configuration is achieved
using SNMP "set"s.  Assuming you are configuring your MLM from your NetView
system using the MLM Config menus, you must ensure that you have SNMP read
write access into your MLM system - test this out first and ensure that you
change values on your MLM.
