NV 7.1.3, AIX 4.3.3

please could someone explain how to use the AdditionalLegalTrapCharacters environment variable
so that ovactiond stops converting some non-alphanumerics with underscores.

Is it as simple as adding the following to netnmrc.pre ?
export AdditionalLegalTrapCharacters

I really need theses two characters because I can find no way to provide scripts with the real name
of interfaces in case of Interface Down events. My scripts get names such as "Serial4_0_0" which
depending on devices could be "Serial4/0/0" or "Serial4/0:0". Also the Interface Down event
contains no ifIndex that could be used to snmpget back to the device ...

Best regards,
