Issue:

Syslog traps from Nexus devices are not processed by Spectrum even though there are mappings in the rtr.txt and switch.txt files.

Cause:

The NXOS modeltype was not linked to the syslog functionality.

Resolution:

This is resolved in CA Spectrum 10.2.1.  For the 9.4.2.1 and 10.2 release, please open a case with CA Support (http://support.ca.com) and request the patch you need:

The release notes show:
