Do you mean the nvaddtrapdconf command?

On AIX, it is in /usr/OV/bin and accepts a -R parameter.

Assuming you meant nvaddtrapdconf,  the error you see usually means NetView security is enabled and you are not logged into NetView security or are not authorized to run the "event" command.  A more remote possibility is you have done something to enhance UNIX security, and you are no longer authorized to run /usr/OV/bin/vfy_access.  You can see all this at the end of the script /usr/OV/bin/nvaddtrapdconf, again, if that is what you meant.

In that case, the event to tell trapd the configuration has changed is not sent.  The update, however has been done and trapd will recognize the trap after the next recycle or you successfully send the event to tell trapd the configuration is updated...

Which is "event -e FMTCHG"

Re: [nv-l] nvaddtotrapd -R

You'll have to tell us.

nvaddtotrapd is not a command shipped with either NetView for Windows nor
NetView for UNIX so it must be something developed  for you locally.  Is it
a script?   If so, then perhaps you can tell what NetView commands it is

I'm trying to add some custom trapd definitions to the trapd.conf file
the nvaddtotrapd -R <file> command. I have successfully executed this
before, multiple times, on this same server, but now when I try to run it

Merged trapd_custom into /usr/OV/conf/C/trapd.conf
NOTE:  Unable to update trapd at this time.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Michael J. Freeman
