mgragentd provides the status of the NetView daemons on the server to the
client.  He might be up, but is he talking to snmpd on the server?  You
might want to check the mgragent.log in /usr/OV/log and see if you see
errors.  mgragentd has to connect to snmpd as a SMUX peer so that when the
client does an SNMPget for that NetView MIB variable, snmpd recognizes it
as something to be handled by mgragentd.  Off hand, I would say the SNMPget
is failing.  Does your client config have the correct read password for
snmpd on the server?

That's about the limit of what I know.  If you still cannot get this to
work, I would call Support, since I have seen it work in the Verification

there's NetView Server 5.1 running on AIX 4.2 (FW 3.6), what works fine.
Now I installed a NetView Client on Solaris 2.5.
The installation of SEA and the client software completed successfully.
After I configured the client at the server and vice versa all the
necessary mounts are done but I can't connect the NetView client to the
server running on the AIX-box.
Whenever I try a 'nvstatus' there is no response for a new minutes and
then i get the message:

nvstatus: Cannot contact the mgragentd daemon for daemon status.
Make sure that the mgragentd daemon is running on the server.

I check the 'mgragentd'-daemon on the NetView Server machine several
times- it's up and running.

What could be the reason for this problem???

Tanx in advance
