I'm not familiar with NT not supporting baroc config.  If it is indeed
a problem, then a possible temp work around would be to install the
TEC SNMP adapter to receive UPS traps & have the TEC SNMP adapter
on forward those events to TEC.  What this simply means is that you now
have most of your events forwarded to TEC by Netview while TEC SNMP
adapter is forwarding UPS traps.  A possible alternative.
