What command line options are available at the NetWare server prompt for NMA and the SNMP eDirectory Agent?


Help information for command line functionality is available for SNMP alarm / trap modules NWTRAP.NLM and NDSTRAP.NLM and DSSNMPSA.NLM. At the server console, type HELP to list all server commands available. Included in the list will be the server console commands for NWTRAP.NLM, NDSTRAP.NLM, and DSSNMPSA.NLM. To get the specific help for each command, type HELP plus the complete command. Example: HELP NWTRAP LIST. This will list the available options to use with the NWTRAP LIST command.
The SNMP eDirectory Agent is configured in iManager, but to verify which alarms / traps are actually enabled or disabled, use the DSSNMPSA command line functions DSSNMPSA LIST ENABLED or DSSNMPSA LIST DISABLED.
