Ok, thanks.
Is there any reason why Cabletron is mentioned as a discover option but the 
discovery process doesn't seem to recognize cabletrons hubs as a hub object? Do 
I need to do some modifications to the OID_TYPE ?

You'll also want to add any new agent names to the "SNMPAgent"
enumeration filed in \usr\ov\fields\c\snmp_fields.

Also, new vendor names go in \usr\ov\fields\c\ovw_fields.

After you've added them, you'll need to run ovw_fields.exe.

There are a few things that you have to identify yourself.
Catalyst-5500s come to mind.

For something like SCO... you'll have to do the following:
  a)  Use your MIB-browser to get the actual OID off the device
      (since NetView has the strange habit of changing the OID
       to a strange oid number if it doesn't understand the
       one given in the MIB-II sysObjectID string).
  b)  Add the oid to \usr\OV\conf\oid_to_type
  c)  Add the oid to \usr\OV\conf\C\oid_to_sym
  d)  Delete the device, and have it re-discovered.

Note:  You can always add your own icons for a SCO.. but then you'll
        also have to change the \usr\OV\symbols\C\(something) file, and
        edit your own bitmaps.  A-D should get you far enough for now.

We have 1 SCO unix box that is not be identified correctly as far as the
snmp agent object. Has anyone run across this and what did you do?
