WinSNMP SnmpRegister() failed: 100

Has anyone seen this message in the NNM Services - Start window? It's preventing my ovtrapd from launching.

Platform: Windows2000
Version: 6.1 with Consolidated Patch Applied.

Budda Smiles on you.

The problem is the boot sequence. If the snmp master agent service has not started by the time netmon and ovtopmd start, then this
situation will occur. Without any control NT will simply start all the services at the same time and it will be a free for all as to who starts first.

You need to run regedt32.exe
Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServices
you will see all the service names
1. select the "HP Openview Process Manager"
2. then select "Edit->Add value" and enter the
"DependOnService" name and "REG_MULTI_SZ"
select okay and then enter the value
3. Exit regedt32 and reboot the box.

Hope this helps,
