The Cisco coldStart trap contains 2 varbinds.

By default only 1 varbind is mapped to an index.

If the second varbind is needed, these steps should be taken.


1. Create directory structure:


2. Place your AlertMap file in this directory.

3. Make your AlertMap look like this:

0.0               0x00010013,0)\

4. Save and update Events off VNM model (VNM -> SpectroSERVER Control -> Update Event Configuration)

5. Send a trap to test.

The code is looking in that exact directory structure.  If custom work is done outside of this structure, it will not work.
