RE: [NV-L] Trapd Events 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.5
No need to applogize for asking questions. We've all have been there before.
One of the things you can try is to determine what device this is coming from.
There should be an IP address from where the SNMP trap is coming from in the
log files. After you have determined which device is sending the trap, see if
you can find a MIB file for that device. Sometimes you have to get them from
the company directly or you can find them at third party sites (i.e.,
Once you have find the correct MIB, you can then use a utility called mib2trap
that will take that MIB file and create an script for you with the correct
addtrap commands so you can add the trap definitions to the trapd.conf file.
Once this is done, you can reload the trapd.conf or you may want to restart the
NetView processes if the reload command doesn't appear to be working.
I hope this helps.

Subject: [NV-L] Trapd Events 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.5
First question about netivew....I am new to Netview so people I apologise in
advance for any stupid questions.
I have a situation where I'm receiving loads of traps in trapd.log and most of
them are similar to the following:
? NO FMT IN TRAPD.CONF: Enterprise (188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.5) generic:4 specific:0
Now this is what I have done to try and get rid of this problem
I have started xnmtrap and added a new Enterprise Name called Enterprise and an
Enterprise ID as 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.5 and then added an Event Name as
Authentication_Error and under generic trap I left that as Enterprise Specific
with the specific trap as 0. I reloaded the trapd.conf file with event -e
FMTCHG command and was hoping that this will get rid of the NO FMT bit but I'm
still getting then and this whole saga has left in confusion hence my plea for
help to you guys who have worked with this product for a while now.
Also is there a way to acknowledge these trap events so that they stop coming
into the trapd.log file once you start to action on it or you are aware of the
issue ....this is to stop the log file going into some kind of trap storm which
inadvertently affects demand poll and quicktest.
All help appreciated.
