I have a very similar environment setup with Cisco routers and very large
Frame Relay network.  I just configured the routers with the IP address of
the netview server and enabled frame-relay traps.  The router will use
whatever interface it has as its primary route back to the server.  In my
situation I have a single serial interface with two PVCs, each with a
different CIR.  We are using OSPF and weight the higher CIR PVC so that it
is the primary leg.  It works like a charm.  Be sure to load the
frame-relay mib and format your traps.  BTW we are monitoring the router
using loopback addresses as well (lo0).  Our frame is IP unnumbered.

Hello Everyone.

NV 6.0.2 for Unix on AIX

I know in the past there have been discussions about setting the
on the routers. I could not locate the messages in the Archives.

I have frame relay routers that will soon be converted to new pvcs. There
will be a primary and secondary pvc to each router. If we do not set the
trap-source at all will the trap be sent or forwarded on the working serial
interface if the primary pvc goes down?

We want to avoid a lot of DNS work by adding all the loopback addresses.
we also want to avoid configuring all the routers.

Can someone please send the arguments for setting the trap-source, please?

Thanks very much.

Happy Holidays
