Unresolved Traps

 I am getting unresolved traps on my Unicenter Event Management console.These are coming from the routers which i have discovered.What may be the reason??


RE: Unresolved Traps

On your DSM server, under tng/caiuser there is a file called catrapd.cfg
This lists all the OID's that the DSM should ignore - ie not send to the console. It will still process the traps and send formatted messages - just not the raw trap.

Add the OID value of your router traps in here and restart catrapd.exe (stop and start opr will do this).

That'll do the trick.

RE: Unresolved Traps


Your problem is name resolution. When Unicenter receives a trap that just contains an IP-address, Unicenter makes a DNS reverse lookup. A work around is to add the server in the host file on your Unicenter server. Some times you must restart your Unicenter server for the change to take effect.
