You haven't forgotten anything.  There is no built-in mechanism to pass 
the fixed text of the Event Log message defined in trapd.conf.   That 
function is not provided in nvcorrd.   You'll have to provide your own 
mechanism to obtain it.

Hello Everyone,

NetView 7.1.2 on AIX 4.3.3

This may be a dumb question but I cannot determine what I am doing wrong 
what I am forgetting. 

I manually created a new Enterprise in xnmtrap and then created 4 traps,
specific 1 through specific 4. In each of the traps I place some text in
"Event Log Message" field. For example, specific trap 1  contains "XYZ
service is down" specific trap 3 contains "XYZ service is up". I don't
include any other information in the "Event Log Message" field, such as
arguments or $E, $G etc. The traps appear in the event viewer and I can 
paging to work with the Ruleset. 

I'm trying to simplify the Ruleset so that I do not need to enter the text
to be included in the page. How do I pass the "Event Log message" text 
trapd.conf into the Ruleset action node for paging? What is the NetView
environment variable? I have tried $NVATTR_1 through 8.
