It's just political.. Company has new standard as SuSe Linux.. So my battle continues with management for deviation.. But.. You know Corporate.. Anyway.. I ran into another issue..
When i did mib2trap for CPQ-HLTH-MIB, it did generate .cds,.oid and .baroc file. But not all classes (oid's) which are in .cds file are in .OID file. This reason i missed a trap to forward to TEC. Please see attached .cds, oid & Mib. Is this normal? How do I add manually in .oid file.
 OID is generic 6 and specific is 6027
Ex: cpqHe3PostError  Exists in .cds file but Does not in .oid file..
Thanks as usual.

Well, on Windows you would have to configure the trapfrwd daemon to forward
traps to your AIX machine, and then configure that to send to TEC using a
ruleset.  If you already had the AIX to TEC link working, then yes, it
probably would have been easier just to forward  the traps from Windows to

But that all begs the question, "Why on earth would someone who has a
working NetView on an AIX system move to Windows?"  Not only  is the effort
high, it's like trading in your SUV for a subcompact.  It's fine if you
want to save gas (or cost) but you cannot tow nearly as much with the
subcompact.  Anyone who needed the robustness and versatility of NetView on
AIX will find the Windows version very constraining.
