I have set up Southbound Gateway (SBG) before in the past with success. I am setting it up again but I am not seeing my traps processed on EventModel or EventAdmin models. It appears as though Spectrum is ignoring my AlertMap and EventDisp files I created and edited. I checked the files and they are placed in the correct location <SPECROOT>/custom/Events/gen_app_gw/EventAdmin. They have proper syntax. I have reloaded events on the VNM model, and restarted SpectroSERVER. Why is my SBGW not working?
If files are saved in Notepad or Wordpad or similar text editor, the text editor may append the file with an extension. The default extension for Windows Notepad and Wordpad is *.txt
Spectrum cannot read flat files used for processing events if they are appended with an extension. Thus Spectrum cannot read "AlertMap.txt" or "EventDisp.txt"
