From a Brocade 4Gb SAN Switch for HP p-Class BladeSystem

Hi Erik,

I'm not familiar with the SAN management interface, but what you have here appears to be the connUnitPortName (OID: and is defined in fa-mib40.mib, found in the HP SIM MIB directory. You can verify MIB registration in HP SIM by running mxmib -l or by looking at the list of MIBs in global alert settings.

[] is the string value, which describes the port. Sorry, I have not seen anything that will translate the string data into anything useful.

Which trap is reporting this?
I work for HP, but my posts and replies are my own.
