We are talking about passed parameters here, and it is difficult to answer
a question like this without a specific example.
But for example, if you had a script called "mytest" and you wanted to pass
it  varbind 1, varbind 2, the enterprise oid, and the agent address, in
that order, you would do so like this:
     <full_path>mytest  $1 $2 $e $A
but inside your script these parameters would be referenced in order as
$1, $2, $3, and $4.  They are not exported as ruleset variables are.

Whether you use the agent address ($A) or the NetView attribute $2, which
always contains the hostname, depends upon whether you are dealing with a
NetView trapd on a non-NetView trap.  Only NetView traps have the hostname
in the second varbind.

Hi all

Running 7.1.4 fp3 on solaris 2.8

I can only get Automatic actions to pass me what is in the string via $1 $2
$3, if I reference $e I get nothing?
I need the ip address or hostname of the source of the event how do I
reference it?

Any ideas
