Hi James,

thank you for your answer. Yes, it is NetView's Interface down trap
First I tried to configure the event with the Alert Editor, but this is only
valable for SNA events. So I added $4 to the event and in the Control Desk
I can see the expansion of this message. But until now I didn't receive any
message from the Extreme Router.
But what I saw is, that the expanded message was send to the TEC in only the
short form. Is this a bug? 

With best regards
Gerd Brunschede

Whose trap is this?  NetView's Interface down trap, 58916867?   Then the
router's SNMP agent is not supplying the interface name correctly.
Normally the name of the interface is included in the trap, e.g, "Interface
tr0 down".  So do an snmpwalk of the device to see what is returned and
then correct its configuration if you can.

The IP address of the interface, along with that of the parent node, and
the object id of both are included in the fourth variable of that trap so
you can add $4 to the Log message using xnmtrap and see if that helps, but
it will give you more information than you actually want.

since  a short time we have installed two routers from ExtremeNetworks
I  think NetView has some problems with those routers. When an interface
down  NetView shows in the event-window a message like
        rif23  Interface down
Until  now I have'nt found any way to show the correlated IP-address. Has
any  experiences how to do this?

Thank  you for help.
