This happened because you installed the Router & Bridge Manager.  It
automatically installs MLM 2.3.1, which starts up at the end of
/etc/rc.tcpip. If you follow the install instructions, you will add a
R/W community to /etc/snmpd.conf so that the RABM install will turn off
trap reception for the MLM and then not create the port 162 conflict
that caused trapd startup to fail.  Add a R/W community for your Netview
machine's primary IP address, add this to ovsnmp.conf using xnmsnmpconf,
run "refresh -s snmpd", then run /usr/OV/bin/RabmServerInstall to fix
it. Or, uninstall RABM using SMIT, and then comment out the MLM startup
at the end of /etc/rc.tcpip.

After this, kill -9 <pid of midmand process> and run ovstart again, and
all should start OK.
