Thanks Paul and Scott,

It works now. Where can I find the documentation for the relationship
between the "source character" in the trap setting and the "attribute" (e.g.
origin, 1, 2, 3...) in the ruleset template? Couldn't find from admin

You should be able to do this in a ruleset, make sure you are using the
origin of the trap in the ruleset. For a netmon generated trap you would
use $2(which is the failing node), but  on an agent trap, you are going to
want to use Origin(in the smartset rule node). However, you might find
that the device is using an IP address that does not resolve to the hostname
and this causes the SmartSet check to fail. This may be part of the problem
but I cannot be sure.
