PowerConnect 6248 Trap Issue

I have two new PowerConnect 6248 fresh out of the box. I updated the firmware to 3.3.1.10 and put all the mibs for this switch type in a seperate directory. I am receiving "unknown" traps on my monitoring system. Reading thru the all the mibs it appears that these traps do not exist in MIB. It is my humble opinion that this is a bug in the MIB or the switch since the trap issued by the switch do not match their definitions.

Below I attempt to resolve the trap using snmptranslate (a fairly standard tool).

snmptranslate .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10895.0.920 -Td
Dell-Vendor-MIB::dellLan.0.920
dellLan OBJECT-TYPE
  -- FROM       Dell-Vendor-MIB
::= { iso(1) org(3) dod(6) internet(1) private(4) enterprises(1) dell(674) dellLan(10895) 0 920 }

In reading the MIBS I did notice dellLan.920 was defined and it looks like dellLan.0.920 from the switch matches dellLan.920 from the MIBS

 

snmptranslate .1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10895.920 -Td

Dell-LAN-TRAP-MIB::copyFinished
copyFinished NOTIFICATION-TYPE
  -- FROM       Dell-LAN-TRAP-MIB
  OBJECTS       { dellTrapTimeStamp, dellTrapSeqNum, dellTrapSource, dellTrapSeverity, dellTrapInfo }
  DESCRIPTION   "Informational trap indicating that the device has finished
         a copy operation successfully."
::= { iso(1) org(3) dod(6) internet(1) private(4) enterprises(1) dell(674) dellLan(10895) 920 }

Can anyone help me enable management on my new managed switches?
