Issue/Introduction

Problem: 

When sending NFA 9.1.x and newer Trap Events to NPC/EM they are showing up with a Category of "Unknown". Also the Description will show up like "NQreporter_MIB.reporter0.1.0.3 Trap" instead of having the correct description.

 

Environment:

NFA 9.1 and later

Any version of NPC/Event Manager

 

Resolution:

1) Download the .zip file from the FTP link below to your NPC server:

ftp://ftp.ca.com/pub/netqos/product_patches/EM/NFA_MIB_EM_Rules_164284.zip

 

2) Extract the zip file.

Copy the .xml files to the locations below:

NetQoSEventRules.xml -> \NetQos\EventManager\EventManagerWS
NetQoSTrapRules.xml -> \NetQos\EventManager\EventManagerService

 

3) Copy the Reporter.mib file to the directory below:

\NetQoS\EventManager\bin

 

4) Open a command prompt and change directory to:

\NetQoS\EventManager\bin


Then run the command below to import the updated NFA mib:

mibtodb Reporter.mib

5) Recycle the NetQos Mysql51 service on the NPC/Event Manager server and wait for some time for new traps to come in from NFA, and the new trap events should now be translated properly.

**Note you should be at least NPC version 6.1.194 and Event Manager version 2.1.116 for the events to be displayed**

 

Additional Information:
