I've added the right OID in the trapd file for Auth. failure on a HP switch. After receiving the trap there is no alarm ?

Version Netsight 6.2.0.221

What's going wrong ?

Johan, if your gettting the trap we can trigger off that in Alarms manager to create an alarm with a specific action. Although it is indirectly related, the following document may have some items of interest. In the step 4 picture, you may be able to use based off Trap data, without using the custom criteria.

Mike,

I created an a alarm with custum cirteria, type trap and a match on information tekst. This works.

It's a workaround but it's ok.
