I don't know how anyone could answer so general a question, without seeing 
the difference between the two, but remember this:
trapd displays traps according to what is in his trapd.conf file.  And 
while mib2trap provides some default specification for traps, that is not 
always optimum,
so you may have to play with that.  Th options are given in the man page 
for trapd.conf. 

Never having see "MG-SOFT Trap Ringer" I wouldn't know how it displays 
things or what kind of configuration file it uses to do so. 
Even so, there is no guarantee that what it shows you and what trapd shows 
you will be the same. 

If what you are complaining about is that the trap variables are shown 
with numeric OIDs rather than MIB object labels, then yes, that is an SNMP 
V1 versus V2 issue.  As I have explained in several appends this week, 
trapd does not load the snmpv2mib.bin file, only /usr/OV/conf/snmpmib.bin, 
so he does not know about anything you loaded with xnmloadmib2.  To get 
the MIB labels to display you would need to load an equivalent SNMP V1 
version of the MIB with xnmloadmib, the V1-only loader. 

Hope this helps

AIX 4.3.3 Netview 7.1.1

I have loaded SNMPv2 MIB from Veritas for the Veritas Cluster Server 
using xnmloadmib2. I used the mib2trap utility to extract trap definition
out of the provided vcs.mib file, which I then merged with trapd.conf file
using addtrap command.

I do see traps come in from VCS, but they are not displaying all relevant
information in the trapd.log file. If I catch these traps using MG-SOFT 
Ringer, I see everyting the way I should. Is this a SNMPv2 vs. SNMPv1
problem?? or something else?
