I am having a problem with my NV for NT 6.02 implementation. Events that are
generated by NV are appearing in the Event Browser but snmp traps that are
sent from other devices never show up in the Event Browser.

On start up I get:

"11/14/01 14:38:18 [trapd] SnmpMgrGetTrap error: Unknown error" in the

I have verified the traps are arriving at the NV server with a sniffer but
they never seem to show up in the trace file.

my trapd.lrf looks like:

OVs_YES_START::-z ,-a5000,-m1000,-t

I suspect a problem w/ trapd and ODBC but I haven't been able to find any
other error msgs. Trapd starts and runs.

Any suggestion where to look next?
