snmp trap is sent with reporting address

env:    4.2, F30

prob:   customer has trap setup on a particular RS Machine that reports
        to another machine running netview
.act:   the customer beleives that the trap is getting to the netview
        system but it comes up as localhost as the reporting machine
.       there are two machines in question
        NV6000 is the machine running NetView
        MIS2   is the machine sending traps

        trap line is still:
.       trap    ottaway     nv6000      1.2.3    fe
        no resolv.conf file, customer is using /etc/hosts/

RESOLUTION:found that the hostname was set to
[mis2] and in /etc/hosts they have   localhost   loopback [mis2]
snmpd uses the hostname value and from that gets Wanted 
to know if there is a way around this because someone set up the
hosts file this way to allow the COSE desktop to work
with HACMP.  There is no way around this in snmpd configuration.
