Thread-topic: Trapd Events
No need to applogize for asking questions.  We've all have been there before.  
One of the things  you can try is to determine what device this is coming from. 
 There should be an IP address from where the SNMP trap is coming from in the 
log files.  After you have determined which device is sending the trap, see if 
you can find a MIB file for that device.  Sometimes you have to get them from 
the company directly or you can find them at third party sites (i.e., 
Once you have find the correct MIB, you can then use a utility called mib2trap 
that will take that MIB file and create an script for you with the correct 
addtrap commands so you can add the trap definitions to the trapd.conf file.  
Once this is done, you can reload the trapd.conf or you may want to restart the 
NetView processes if the reload command doesn't appear to be working.  
I hope this helps.

Subject: [NV-L] Trapd Events

First question about netivew....I am new to Netview so people I apologise in 
advance for any stupid questions.
I have a situation where I'm receiving loads of traps in trapd.log and most of 
them are similar to the following: 
? NO FMT IN TRAPD.CONF: Enterprise ( generic:4 specific:0 
Now this is what I have done to try and get rid of this problem
I have started xnmtrap and added a new Enterprise Name called Enterprise and an 
Enterprise ID as and then added an Event Name as 
Authentication_Error and under generic trap I left that as Enterprise Specific 
with the specific trap as 0. I reloaded the trapd.conf file with event -e  
FMTCHG command and was hoping that this will get rid of the NO FMT bit but I'm 
still getting then and this whole saga has left in confusion hence my plea for 
help to you guys who have worked with this product for a while now.
Also is there a way to acknowledge these trap events so that they stop coming 
into the trapd.log file once you start to action on it or you are aware of the 
issue ....this is to stop the log file going into some kind of trap storm which 
inadvertently affects demand poll and quicktest.
All help appreciated.
Many thanks.
