My previous post had a couple problems with syntax.
When I copied and pasted from eXceed to Outlook the underscores in "DFM Exception" got replaced with spaces and an extra space got appended after the backslash at the end of each line. This prevented the addtrap command from working.

This version should work!

You DO NOT need to load the MIB! I don't think you could browse the agent even if you got it loaded.
What you do need to do is define the traps (as you said) sent by Cisco Device Fault Manager (DFM).
There are only two traps sent by DFM (OEM'd from Smarts).
The definitions that I wrote are included below.

Cut and paste the lines in the addtrap script below into a shell script and execute it.

DFM sends a Specific 4 trap for all exceptions with meaningful text.

DFM sends a Specific 7 trap for all cleared events.
The problem is that the only indication that it is a recovery message is that it is a Specific 7.  The message text is exactly the same as the previous Specific 4 exception.  I guess Smarts thought it was easier to correlate events if the messages were exact matches, except fot the Specific trap number.

The message sent appears to indicate a problem condition because the
exact same message is sent for the event as well as the cleared condition.
The only difference is that the warning is Specific 4 and the clear event
is this Specific 7"

Error detected while loading MIB file: /usr/OV/snmp mibs/DFM-MIB.my. This
MIB cannot de loaded until the following problem si corrected:
Line 12: Error defining object: found 'MODULE-IDENTITY'

Any idea what I'm doing wrong??? I got the MIB my e-mail from cisco.

Thanks. Regards
