Vynita,

as you have realized you must quote each parameter otherwise the shell will split for each space or tab character.
$A is a device name or an IP address and could do without quotes, however I just quote every parameter like :

EXEC /home/u/automation/brprt "$1" "$2" "$3" "$A" "$S" "$G"

Of course this quoting is wrong in case some parameters do contain double quotes.
You should not have this problem because ovactiond replaces many punctation characters by _ .
If that is a problem for you (e.g. interface name Serial1/2:3 becomes Serial1_2_3) can configure ovactiond :

- decide which characters you really want (ovactiond will add a \ before each as \: \; etc)
- add 2 lines to your /usr/OV/bin/netnmrc.pre file (adjust the contents of the 1st line of course)

AdditionalLegalTrapCharacters="/:;="
export AdditionalLegalTrapCharacters

You must restart the whole of NetView after modifying this file (ovstop, ovstop nvsecd, /etc/netnmrc & )

A final consequence is that your scripts must explicitely handle the \ characters inserted by ovactiond.
Usually "substitute every \ character by nothing". Write this is your favorite scripting language. I use perl all the time.

Hope this helps.
Philippe.

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

Thanks
