Well, assuming that where it appears to wrap (at the comment line in line 3 and
at the .1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3.1.1.4.0 OctetString  line) it really does wrap (so
that the real one has these commands all on one line), I don't see anything
wrong.  And in fact, I copied it to my box and tried it.  Worked fine using my
NetView address instead of yours, after I fixed the wrap.

Are you sure you have the correct address?   If you are on the NetView server
and sending to the NetView server, you could use `hostname` (those are
back-ticks not single quotes) or the actual hostname spelled out rather than the
ip address.

Hello All.

I have wriiten a snmptrap test script as shown below. But it simply will not
work and I get no errors back, the script seems to run fine. There is no
entry in the trapd.log file and of course no event in the Events Display
window. I am executing the script from the Netview Server itself, i.e.
123.29.177.115. Anyone see what my problem is here??

#!/bin/ksh
#Uses the Interface Down as a test event - 58916867 (netview6000 enterprise
trap)

NVHOST=123.29.177.115             # the netview host
ABOUTHOST=123.29.167.22           # the node the trap is about or from
MYTRAPID=58916867                 # Specific trap id (interface down)
ENTERPRISE='.1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3'   # Netview enterprise

/usr/OV/bin/snmptrap $NVHOST $ENTERPRISE $ABOUTHOST 6 $MYTRAPID 1 \
        .1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3.1.1.2.0 Integer 14  \
        .1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3.1.1.3.0 OctetString $ABOUTHOST  \
        .1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3.1.1.4.0 OctetString "This is a snmptrap test script"
\
        .1.3.6.1.4.1.2.6.3.1.1.5.0 OctetString "nill"
exit

Any info appreciated.

Gord.
