Hi Guys,

I've recently been 'given' Netview to look after and am finding parts of it a very steep learning curve indeed!
This list has been extremely helpful so far, though, I must say!

I have a copy of mcafee NaiComplete.mib, against which I have run mib2trap.
I have run the resulting script and it adds everything successfully to the trapd.conf file.
Everything looks just fine, until I send some alerts from the ePO Server for which the MIB/traps are designed, at which point some of the traps go into trapd.log with the following error headline (I can supply the rest of the error if it helps):

FMT Error (too large) occurred trying to format trap generic 6 specific 1059

Alternatively, another test alert does generate an event in the dynamic workspace, but cannot be interpreted, due to:

'Trap found with no known format in trapd.conf(4)
Enterprise mcafeeTVDTrap (
generic trap: 6 specific trap: 1278

I read on a NetCool board that the mcafee traps are known to not cover the Enterprise OIDs in the proper way(?) but I don't know what to do to fix the problem :(
I have looked for an updated version of the MIB but can find nothing.

If anyone has any idea how I should proceed, I'll be very grateful! Any additional info can be provided.

Kind Regards,

Greg C
