If Im not mistaken, the SMI RFC has provision for Octets.  As long as the varbind type is configured for Octet, I believe Netview will display it.  My guess would be your trap is sending the wrong varbind type (not Octets) thus trapd and nvevents not knowing how to handle it.

AIX 4.3.3 ML10 + NV 7.1.3 + popular patches.

I need to provide a script with the parameters found in a trap.
$1, $2, etc work fine for integers and strings but doesn't for Octet Strings.

It seems that the bytes are passed (and escaped for most of them) by ovactiond.
Is there is way to get the bytes string as displayed in the events window ?
( i.e. a string like "0x01 12 34 ab ..." )

Best regards,
