The problem is that you are getting a format error message because you are
trying to access variables $2 and $3 and this trap does not have any.  It
only has varbind 1.  So that is messing up your script.  If you varbinds
are strings with spaces in them, then you have to enclose them in quotes
when you pass them, like this
      /home/u/automation/brprt "$1" $A $S $G

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
