Hardware snmp notification are version 1 instead of snmpv2

hello,

I am currently trying to figure out how can we get snmpv2 traps for hardware failure (ethernet, Hard disk, Power supply, fan...)
and currently I am receving only v1 trap
I have configured snmpd.conf with trap2sink and trapsink
If I remove trapsink from the snmpd.conf file I am not receiving any traps.

It looks for me really strange that OS trap sent by the PSP are only v1.
I am running rhel4U6 and psp version 7.8. I tried with Rhel4U4 and also psp 8.1 On Dl380G5.

net-snmp version is 5.1.x

I tried hpasm command but it does not help.
I have no choice than to use v2 version at this stage (It may change if there is nothing possible I can do)
Does anybody have a clue if snmp trap v2 can be configured on this setup?

ProLiant management agents only use the v1 syntax. It's completely compatible with v2, so what exactly is the problem?

the problem is that I have other prcoesses using snmpd and that is only v2. So the CMS is receiving twice the alarms v1 and v2

It is not really clean to have both type of alarms, I need to have an homogeneous management notifications environment.
