This qualifies as a frequently asked question, so I'm copying
When nodes are first discovered, depending on the timing, it is possible
nvcold daemon, which populates the collections, to grab a node before it
been fully defined. So it will show up in the IP map with the correct
but remain with the generic symbol in the Collections submap. To correct
you must force nvcold to revisit the node. In the Collections submap,
the 'egg' for the collection, then, from the top menu bar,
this Submap'. The egg will disappear, then immediately reappear, blue. When
open it, nvcold will re-evaluate it and populate it with the correct nodes
the correct symbols. This is usually only a problem when Collections are
before a wholesale discovery of the network.

Hi all: I have a collection of HUB´s IBM and in the map it appears with
the symbol of the HUB, but in the collection it apears like a generic
object. I´m running netview 5.1 with AIX 4.2.1.
Does anybody know why they don´t appear with the same symbol in the
different places ?
