When you start/stpo netmon, netmon has a great deal to do at startup. Lots
of loading things
into memory and a sort-f configuration poll. Depending on the size of your
database, this can
take a long time. The blue means the node has been partly discovered, but
netmon has not
gotten around to checking it for status. You might have a long polling
interval, too. If you try
to do a demandpoll at this time you might find that it also takes a long
time to respond.
In Netview V5 we were blessed with the -y option. Now you can update the
just type 'netmon -y' which tells netmon to reload the seedfile. It is not
necessary to stop/start
netmon when you change the seedfile. For good measure I would still then
ping the new address,
although that is probably voodoo on my part.
Don't know about the SrAdmin business.

I have a couple of questions...
1. When you add a device (I am adding a server IP address) to the
seedfile, I stop/start netmon, but the device comes up blue (umanaged) for
quite some time. I change the symbol to Compound (Propagated) and it still
remains blue. It will appear in a Collection but not on the IP Internet Map
for a significant period of time. Is this normal? How long should it take?
2.If several SrAdmin Netview users are logged in to Netview, all using the
same AIX account, will they all have SrAdmin access. I have tried it and
only one of the users seem to have full privilages. Is this normal?
Any info appreciated,
