Re: Using Solaris SEA to send traps to netview
Well, I guess my question then is how do I track down the authentication error?
I can run snmpwalk from the netview manager station on the Solaris system with
no authentication problem so community name is correct. I notice in your
example that you are sending an MLM trap. I want to use the snmp_trapsend
utility in a shell or perl script from information in /var/adm/messages. Am I
totally wrong in what to do here? Do I need to set up an MLM? I'm new to snmp
issues so could be way off track.
