Ah, now I understand.  When you said "Event Source" I thought you meant the
Event Attribute ruleset node.  But you haven't got one of those.  The "event
source" you are talking about I'll wager is the item of that name in trapd.conf.
But that has no effect on a ruleset.  trapd.conf affects only how the events
will be formatted, not how they will match in the ruleset.  The two are almost
independent.  nvcorrd gets the raw trap from trapd and has no idea what you put
in trapd.conf. What you have to do is construct an Event attribute block and use
that between the Node Down Trap Setting and the Reset.

*    The Event Stream is set to BLOCK.
*    Two Trap Settings: 1-Node Down, 2-Node Up
*    Reset on Match - 2 Equal 2, Delay Time: 15 minutes
*    Two Actions - One generates email, one for paging.

The ruleset itself works for the node down >15 minutes (email and
page are generated).  The only problem is the Event Source doesn't
limit the devices to the one in the list.  I'll turn on the trace to see
what happens.

Thank you.
