This document is in clarification on how to keep the existing trap configurations when a new MIB is loaded.


When you want to keep the current trap configurations the scripts nnmincidentcfgdump.ovpl and nnmincidentcfgload.ovpl are the right tools to export and import their configurations.


The right scripts to use in such a scenario are nnmincidentcfgdump.ovpl and nnmincidentcfgload.ovpl:

a) Export the trap configuration:

nnmincidentcfgdump.ovpl -dump <directory for the config to be saved< -oid <specify the OID in numeric format>

b) Load the new MIB.

c) Import the trap configuration.

nnmincidentcfgload.ovpl -load <directory of the saved config file>
