Jane Curry and Alexis Henry have already responded to your more specific
questions, but let me add some information about NetView Version 6.0.1 for UNIX.
In that release we have added many SNMP V1 copies of standard Cisco MIBs as part
of /usr/OV/snmp_mibs.  These are now automatically available for you to use in
conjunction with snmpCollect and the V1 mibloader and browser (xnmloadmib and
xnmbrowser).  And they will not interfere with any V2 MIBs you load as part of
the Ciscoworks integration or for other purposes.

Also, a trapd.conf with dozens of Cisco traps is already available in
/usr/OV/newconfig/OVSNMP-RUN/trapd.conf in 6.0.1.  If you run the nvaddtrapdconf
utility against this file, it will automatically add all the new Cisco traps
from this file to your existing trapd.conf file (in /usr/OV/conf/trapd.conf).
If you require more specific Cisco trap definitions, for particular pieces, of
hardware, then please see the updated cisco.readme in /usr/OV/snmp_mibs/readmes
for some hints on how to more successfully use mib2trap to extract trap
definitions from MIBs which contain them.

Hope this helps.

Subject:  [NV-L] MIBs for Cisco Routers.


In my network, we installed Cisco routers. I loaded the Cisco standard mibs
(SNMPv2  *.my files) and other specific mibs as defined by Cisco support.
The loading goes fine. However the traps received from routers,  as shown
in the events , as still unformatted.

I understand I have to add cisco traps. I used mib2trap to convert the
".my" mib files to shell files.  But I get files with 0 byte file-size. So
I can not add traps

Where am I going wrong?

Thanx for any help.
