    There is no MIB for BNA. The MIB's you would load into Spectrum would be for the products you are managing with BNA. If you are managing SAN switches with FOS 6.4 you would load the FOS 6.4 MIB's into Spectrum.

    If you have BNA configured as a trap forwarder they will forward the native switch trap with no modification. One method to confirm if this is working is to validate if there are any SNMP messages in the BNA master log, if so, these SNMP based events should be in the Spectrum receiver log.

    Thank you for the reply

    We have uploaded the MIBs of the products managed by BNA, even then the traps are not getting capture by spectrum,

    Is there a way to check if BNA is forwarding traps or not. Trap forwarding option in BNA is enabled and configured with recepients.

    I have always been a fan of wireshark to test this kind of things.
