I'm not sure I completely understand your environment but you can eliminate
"environment 1" by configuring all your hosts that are sending these
application traps to forward their traps to a particular NetView Server or
Servers instead of the MLMs. Each remote host is going to have to be
manually configured to forward their traps to somewhere, whether that be an
MLM or a NetView Server.

If you already have all your remote hosts configured to send their traps to
various MLMs and you want the NetView Server in "environment 2" to see
these traps that each MLM is receiving, then you need to configure the
NetView Server in "environment 2" to use MLMs and it will automatically go
out and use the distributed MLM's and should automatically configure the
ones it uses to forward their traps to the NetView Server. You can always
go back and manually alter the way the NetView Server is using the MLMs
after the NetView Server has started using them.

This is a simplified explanation but the point is to allow the NetView
Server to configure the MLM usage after you turn on the feature and simply
make sure all your remote hosts have their trap destination set correctly
as this is a manual process.

Subject:  [NV-L] NetView MLM Migration Problem

We have a situation with our NetView servers that you may be able to

NV Environment 1:

We have some application traps being caught by MLMs and forwarded to
server #1.

NV Environment 2:

We have OV_If_Down traps being collected at our NetView server #2.

We've had some problems with "Environment 1" and the thought was to
integrate the MLM structure and application traps into "Environment 2".
Ideally, we'd like to get rid on "Environment 1".

The problem is that our MLM hierarchy seems to be broken and suffering from
some misconfiguration.  I'm using the MLM Installation Guide but can't seem
to fix them to point to our NetView server #2.

Both servers are running V6.0.1 on AIX.  MLMs are AIX and Solaris.

Can you think of anything I might try?  Any help is appreciated.
