Its not documented because it is only for internal use. It marks a node as
a potential candidate for remote installation of trapgend, which is
restricted to AIX-only boxes. Of course, without trapgend to do it, then
the remote ping option won't work from map. I think that is its only
function, to help tell whether a node (might) have that capability or not.
You could arbitrarily add it (type 50) to another OID but that alone
wouldn't change anything.

Subject: Unknown oid_to_type flag
This one's been bugging me for quite a while now, so I thought I'd finally
For NetView 5.1 and 5.0 (and possibly before that), the entries in
oid_to_type for the 3.2 and 4.1 AIX agents appear as follows:
22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.188.8.131.52.2:IBM:IBM RS/6000:50 # SNMP agaent for AIX 3.2
184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.3:IBM:IBM RS/6000 4.1:50 # SNMP agent for AIX 4.1
My question is: What does the "50" mean in the topology attribute field?
