Gee, I would have expected it to do it automatically, unless your seedfile
excluded the node somehow. If it received a ping from a node, it would try
to discover it, so why not a trap? Oh. Probably because different daemons
are doing the listening.

Well, if I really wanted to find them, I guess I would make a background
ruleset (listed in /usr/OV/conf/ESE.automation) that spawned an action to
send one or two pings to the address that the trap came from ($NVA). But
what traps should it do this for? All traps? That depends on what kind of
trap traffic you usually have. In some environments that would be a bad
idea. Maybe the generic coldstart trap would be a good choice, if you want
a general solution and are not in a big hurry.

I'm sure someone will point out the pitfalls in this approach...

Can you setup Netview to Discover Nodes upon receiving a Trap from a Node
that is not yet Managed by Netview.
