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.

Hello all,

This one's been bugging me for quite a while now, so I thought I'd finally
ask :-)....

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:

1.3.6.1.4.1.2.3.1.2.1.1.2:IBM:IBM RS/6000:50 # SNMP agaent for AIX 3.2
1.3.6.1.4.1.2.3.1.2.1.1.3: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?

Thanks!


Scott
