Hi Peter,

The flow of events is from trapd, through nvcorrd (the correlation engine) and then to nvserverd. Your nvserverd.conf specifies that the NetView correlation rule for nvcorrd to apply to this event stream, is PRODUCTION_NEW.rs. Have you remembered to update PRODUCTION_NEW.rs to include a forwarding element for the NetView event, trap-a, which is to be translated to your TEC class of NetBoss??? You can get at the NetView ruleset editor from the Tools menu.

Try testing your PRODUCTION_NEW.rs ruleset by applying it to a NetView events dynamic workspace - if it appears there then the same logic should apply when it is being forwarded to nvserverd.

I can't seem to figure this out and was hoping someone could help me understand:

I have a trap defined in trapd.conf that has the TEC slot mapping defined:
trap-a  {} 6 70000000 N 0 0 "Log Only Events"
 source NetBoss
 sub_origin INFO
 severity "HARMLESS"

And I have nvserverd runing with a ruleset:
## The following four lines are for debugging the state correlation engine
# TraceLevel=ALL
# TraceFileName=/usr/OV/log/adpttrc.out

So the question is when the trap comes in and trapd hands off to nvserverd, does nvserverd process the event through the ruleset or just forward it to the tec? The customer says it used to work but it recently stopped. I can't find any changed files. Other events get to the tec. Turning NvserverdTraceTecEvents on showed other events making to nvserverd but not mine (don't fully understand where in the flow the trace is)
