There is a fix to the problem of not seeing the new classes in 7.1.5 FP03.
It's PJ32581.  You can ask Level 2 for a test fix or better yet, install

Very few people use the tecconfig.bat configurator after the first time,
because it may not recognize special modifications you make to the CONF
file manually and may overwrite them.   For that reason, we missed the fact
that the tecconfig.bat needs every class definition in the CDS to have an
ENTERPRISE and a SPECIFIC clause, because that's how it "sees"them. Without
those, the class name does not get populated into the tecconfig table so
you can select it.

So you have three choices:

(1) You can go add those items in the CDS if you like, after your other
SELECT clauses:

 ?: $SPECIFIC = 6032;

using the appropriate values for the initial ordering numbers and the
correct specific trap number.  Be sure to put them AFTER your existing
SELECTs in each class so that you don't mess up the mappings below.

(2) Or you can just edit the conf file and add the appropriate pairs of
Filter and FilterCache statements to it for your new classes:

(3) Or you can get the fix or FixPack, rerun mib2trap and replace what you
have in the CDS with the new output.

Sorry I didn't think to warn you about this sooner.

After scrambling through the CDS file, i deleted few entries and finally
got it to work and now tecad_nv6k process is running. Now question is, when
i run tecconfig.bat, i don't see those new classes showing up in the list
to select to forward to TEC. How are classes populated when we execute
tecconfigbat. Am i missing something? Also should the entries in OID and
CDS must match? I hope there is no issue since i deleted some entries in
CDS file but they may exist in OID file.
