I think you need to contact Support about this.

I've not seen anything like it before, but it appears to be  just what you 
identified it as -- a NetView internal trap ( 50790400 or NodeMarginal) 
which is somehow being sent with a bad enterprise id.  That's why it is 
unformatted -- because the enterprise id is wrong and trapd doesn't  see 
it as a NetView trap.   You could, of course, just modify trapd.conf with 
Trap Settings and add such a trap definition, but that just masks the 

At this point I don't know what else to say, because based on what I know 
about the how the code works, I don't see how this can happen and not have 
the entire product messed up.   All the NetView daemons use the same code 
to generate events, so how one could have it wrong, and just for this 
trap, baffles me.  And NodeMarginal is sent by netmon, so you'd expect 
he'd either have it right or have all his others wrong, too.   That's why 
I'd talk to Support.
Sorely puzzled.

Hi list,
nv 7.1.3 + fixpack1, w2k.
I've noticed that I'm getting the following trap from various devices. The 
enterprise starts with 0 though & I didn't think this was possible.  Is it 
some form of internal netview trap?  If so, then why is it unformatted?  A 
little confused by this one...  It says it's netview6000 - but I can't see 
what it's telling me?!
I think I'm having one of those days....;-)
