To set up HP OpenView:

  1. Start the OpenView Node manager.

    Note: If you are running OpenView on the Windows NT operating environment, make sure that SNMP Service (Control Panel>Networks>Services>SNMP Service) is installed and the service is started ( netstart /stop snmp ) before you start OpenView.

  2. Click Options>Load/Unload MIBS : SNMP.
  3. Click Browse. Load snmp / mibs /piv1.mib or snmp / mibs /piv2.mib. Click Save.

    Note: The *.mib files can be found on the enVision server in the %_envision%\etc\mibs directory. They are called piv1-mib.txt and piv2-mib.txt.

     

  4. Click Options>Event Configuration.  The system displays the Event Configuration dialog box.
  5. Click PrivateI in the Enterprises block.
  6. Double-click ospiGenericTrap in the Events for Enterprise PrivateI block.  The system displays the description of the event with the variable octet string.
