Hi All


I am using netview for Unix 7.1.4 fp03 on solaris 2.9


With xnmtrap I have configured command for automatic action as follows

sh –x /home/test/remfin “$A $5 C $2 $3”  >> test.out


What I wanted to do was remove all brackets and quotes in the string and replace them with nothing or blank.

It is executing remfin because I tail test.out

remfin looks like ths




 echo $Str1     ……


change string and the I do another snmptrap ( and here I see the _23.5_ etc  in the trapd.log )


In test.out the string that is been given to me has already been modified by something removing the brackets and quotes with a _  but not by remfin. I have removed all sed statement in remfin.

What is changing my string??


If I remove remfin via xnmtrap then nothing happens which implies that it is being trigged by the correct oid



Please help I am going nuts.
