I am running NNM 9i on Solaris, how can I make a particular SNMP trap change the severity color on my topology map. I am propagating the highest severity to the topology maps but my SNMP traps don't seem to impact that status. All incidents are coming into the node incidents tab but the critical traps don't seem to impact the map.

I've had a support case open for almost 3 months asking the same question. No answer yet.
You would think this would be something completely trivial to do, but apparently not. Fundamentally I think it's a design philosophy issue - NNMi seems to be very much designed around managing a list of open incidents, as opposed to earlier versions, which were much more of a visual tool.

I've received these attached scripts, but I haven't yet had much more than a cursory look at them. When I get time, I'll try and get them working in my lab.
There's a Perl version and a Bash version. Depends on what OS you're using as to your options. If you're doing it on Windows, you might want to check through the ovpl one carefully. You'll need to rename the .ovpl script - this forum expects certain file extensions.
You'd set an action in your trap configurations, to call them to set a status, or remove it. If a node is already above the status you call, then nothing will happen.
You'd call them with something like this:
addConclusion.sh –N <node> -s CRITICAL –c MyStatus
addConclusion.sh –N <node> -r –c MyStatus
These are completely unsupported - don't bother logging support cases for help with this. I have also been advised that as they are unsupported, there is no guarantee they will continue to work with future releases.
All that said, there's no reason we can't try and help each other out. It's probably going to be a couple of weeks before I get a chance to try these - if anyone does use them, and gets it working, please post back here, to let us know how it goes.
I've also logged an ER for this - I encourage others with support contracts to do the same. This is fairly basic product functionality that should exist in NNMi.

You have to open up a business escallation case to attempt to raise the priority of an ER. Please dont try and compare 7.X and NNMi on a code basis as its a complete rewrite. Functionality yes.

Anyone see this before or have any idea what it is referring to?

While this is great for the Linux folks, how about Windows 2008 R2 server?
Is this possible in a HP NNMi Windows server instance.
I would assume that it is possible given the following synopsis:
The customer would like to capture a non-SNMP polled device in the topology map and monitor the device based upon SNMP Trap Forwarding from another NNMi instance. The customer also wants the topology map to display status information based upon a registered event.
Any ideas Anyone???
