I believe that in 5.1.1 there is a bug in trapd which limits what he will
pass on to other sources, one of those being the tecad_nv6k adapter.  If
this is a critical problem for you then you need to contact Support and see
about getting a temporary efix for it.   But that has nothing to do with
the UNIX-only nvserverd stuff.   UNIX doesn't see the problem because the
UNIX code works entirely differently.

I have the Tec adapter loaded but it only sends traps that are
netview-related, in other words I don't get netware/cisco/bay specific
traps being sent to TEC from netview.

I am not an expert on NT doc so I don't know what you are reading, but the
files you are talking about are for the UNIX version only.  Since there is
no nvserverd in NT, there is no nvserverd event, and hence no .baroc and no
.rls.  Look in your NT release notes.  You should find mention of how to
install the NT TEC adapter, which is way different than the internal
NetView one supplied with UNIX.

Good luck

>From what I understand, when you run mib2trap a baroc file is created. This
baroc file needs to be imported and compiled into a rule base on TEC.
However there seems to be a class problem with an error about
nvserverd_event missing. Does anyone know where this file
nvserverd_event.baroc and nvserverd_event.rls are located. They are
supposed to be on the netview server under \usr\ov\conf. A document that I
found states that these came with netview 5.0 and should be imported along
with any other baroc files created in netview. Any help would be
appreciated.
Ps: These files don't come with 5.1 or 5.1.1
