This is a common problem for new NetView users, Larry.  Loading the MIBs does nothing for traps. Loading MIBs allows the MIB Browsers and their cousins to function correctly.  

The data you appended is enough for a manual customization of the trapd.conf file.  You have to either manually customize traps using the trap tool (xnmtrap is the command line entry to open the interface) or you need to see if the trap you are interested in is defined in the MIBs.  (Directly editing trapd.conf is not recommended.) Usually the definition is at the end of the MIB file.  Then you run MIB2TRAP, make sure the Enterprise ID exists in the output file, then execute the output file (it contains ADDTRAP commands). 

Failing to have all the dependencies in place is the biggest problem. It usually results in the Enterprise ID not being present in the ADDTRAP commands which are created.  You can add it manually if it's not there.

Good luck.

Hi all,
I'm getting these below said traps in Netview from one
of our Nokia devices. I have the MIB's loaded and OID
is in the message but nothing else. no hostname, no
origin and no enterprise nothing except link up or
down. or is possible that i have loaded MIB's wrong.
How do i know if MIbs loaded are not right. I have
loaded two mibs for this device. First with absolute
no errors, and second MIb with error saying
:enterprise ID not found". SO i used the -i and OID
from previous addtrap and loaded using xnmloadmib2 And
this is one which gives wierd message format. I used
mib2trap to load mibs.

" TEC_ITS_BASE - Agent Interface Down (linkDown Trap)
enterprise:ENTERPRISES (
args(1):  [1]
(Integer): 5  "

Any ideas.. Many Thanks,
