Netview 7.1.4 Solaris 9


I’m setting up traps correlation from Windows servers (windows 2000 and 2003) running IBM Raid Manager Version 6.11.07 (2224)


The correlation passes the following variables:


$NVE              Event OID

$NVG              Generic Trap Number (6)

$NVS              Specific Trap Number

$NVATTR_1   Agent Address

$NVATTR_2   Some variable




$NVATTR_6 some variable


The problem I’m having is that $NVATTR_1 (Agent Address) only displays the agent windows name (local system) and not the fully qualified DNS name. Of course this is causing problems to identify servers with the same windows name, but registered on different DNS domains. I asked one of the Window’s administrators to check if there is any way that the raid manager passes the servers’ DNS name, but he has been unable to make any progress.


Has any one out there encountered this same issue???


For our trap processing to work, the offending device must be able to pass its fully qualified DNS name.


Thanks for any help.
