Hi-

I needed a method to configure a list of SNMP notification (AKA trap)
hosts for use by diskless workstations booting from a network device.
Since none of the usual SNMP configuration information is available
at this time, I would like to use a DHCP option to provide a list of
IP addresses to which to send notifications when, for instance, booting
from a network device fails for some reason.  This could also be used
to centrally configure the list of SNMP notification hosts, rather than
setting them individually on each machine.

Anyway, I've submitted a short draft describing the proposed option
as draft-bakke-dhc-snmp-trap-00.txt.  I'll forward the message to
these two groups when the draft is published.  In the mean time, it
is available at:

ftp://ftpeng.cisco.com/mbakke/ips/dhcp/draft-bakke-dhc-snmp-trap-00.txt

I'm guessing that these two mailing lists (dhcwg and mibs) are the
correct places to discuss this (please let me know if there's a more
appropriate list).
