THnaks for replying. Here is what i did. Attached are
the two MIBs 1.NOKIA-IPSO-SYSTEM-MIB.txt 2. IF-MIB.txt
I ran command as below.
mib2trap NOKIA-IPSO-SYSTEM-MIB.txt nokia.sh
This command ran fine without errors and created
nokia.sh with add trap which i executed and loaded
Now when i ran IF-MIB.txt as below:
mib2trap IF-MIB.txt if.sh 
I got errors saying Enterprise ID not found. So i
picked up -i from nokia.sh and added in the if.sh and
executed the addtrap to load mibs.
IS this right? 
Also i noticed in trapd.log, the hostname of the nokia
device is and even the origin.
Many thanks for helping me out guys..
