  • Netsight v6.x
  • Extreme Management Center v7.x
  • Path variable for the traps is incorrect.
  • This can occur if NetSight is migrated from a Windows OS to a VM or Linux OS (or vice-versa).  The paths will need to be manually modified to reflect the pathing of the new Operating system Netsight is running on.
1.  Launch the Java Client for Console
2.  Click on the 'Traps' tab and then the Gear Icon

For example, if Netsight is running on a Linux machine, the path in the screenshot would be correct (%logdir%/traps).

If you are running Netsight on a Windows platform, the path would need to be modified to reflect the path on the Windows machine (%logdir%\traps).    Note the slash is in the different direction.

5.  Click OK
