Thanks for the info Colin.

I wasn't very clear - I have already imported the pET mib that I managed to
find, and then ran mib2trap and executed the .bat file afterwords.  I can
see the traps in the trapd.conf file, but the actual traps that the HW is
generating don't match up.

I guess my question would be - does anyone know if these pET mibs are HW
specific?  It seems that when I imported MIBs for IBM Director there where
pET mibs there - but nothing that matched the SUN HW..

Thanks again.
