Have you run the relevant addtrap commands for these various traps?

If you have mib files, a rudimentary addtrap command script can be
formed using /usr/OV/bin/mib2trap   This program also has a man page.
You may have to concatenate the mib files with other dependent mib
files  so mib2trap can create the entire OID.   

Note also that if you are using NetView Mid-level Manager as part of
your solution, MLM does not support SNMPv2 PDU's.
