I have enabled the the mlm status up and down events to log and display but
they are not getting to the trapd.log at all. They arent in the MLM
trapd.log in teh first instance.
One thing I forgot to mention is that The MLM is on a developmnet LAN same
as the server. Should this cause any problems?
Is it not possible for netmon to handover status polling to nodes on the
same subnet as itself perhaps?

Thanks Arthur

I cannot answer all of your questions, but I can reassure you on one
point: the Up event you see from Netmon is a fake one, issued in response
to an up event from MLM. That MLM up event is configured as Don't Log
or Display. If you want to see them, go into Event Configuration and change
it for a while. The session trap is additional.

Subject:  [NV-L] mlm status polling

I have an MLM on solaris 2.6 reporting back to a netview 5.1.2 server also
on solaris 2.6.
The community names are all configured correctly and if I generate a trap
using the snmptrap command, send it to the mlm, it forwards it to the

To test status polling I have simply turnede off a pc and unmanaged it,
I manage it I get a node down trap.
The MLM trapd.log has an entry in it for enterprise . and
speciffic 2 (session up trap) for the ip address Im using for this testing.

When the node down trap is recieved it is from netmon. There is no mention
of it coming from the mlm.

Also the mlm trap doesnt appear as a node down trap. Its a session up trap
generated by the mlm. There is no session down trap.
I have configured an MLM seedfile and told netmon to use it, recycled
daemons etc.can I use wildcards for this as in normal seedfiles? I have
set the mlm status monitor table , enabled it and recylced daemon.(Can I
wildcards for network addresses using * here as in seedfiles?

What I want is for the MLM to forward node down traps to the server.

thankyou Arthur
