Could this be happening when the box is rebooted or midmand is restarted?

Because MLM should use the last configuration he had when he restarts, but it is possible to create a permanent configuration file that will always be used on restarts instead. This allows you to have a standard default you can always go back to by simply restarting the daemon. But you have to set it up.

Run smconfig and when you have refreshed your view of the MLM tables, click the "File" button in the upper left and select "MLM Configuration/Reinitialize". This brings up a panel which lets you save the current config to a local file. We recommend that you use the config directory var/adm/smv2/mlm/config to keep everything together. If you also set the reinit flags to use that file, like this,
"-i -c /var/adm/smv2/mlm/config/<my file>"
Then on startup the old configuration will be ignored (-i) and the saved one will be used instead (-c <full path file>.)

Could that have been set up that way for you in the past?

[NV-L] MLM trap port

I know this has probably been asked before but I am having problems with making this configuration stick.
I have MLM and NetView on the same server. I have trapd configured to listen on port 1662.
I have MLM configured to listen on 162 and forward on 1662.
This MLM configuration will not seem to stay configured in the MLM.
I have configured MLM with smconfig to forward to NetView on 1662 several times.
After about a week or two, the configuration setting somehow reverts back to forward on 162.

I modify the trap destination table, save the configuration and reinitialize midmand and all is well for a week or two.
Then it mysteriously reverts back.

Is there a file that needs reconfigured to make this permanent?
