     Yes, my system is running on AIX...and because we are moveing from one
     IP domain over to another IP domain there is no reverse lookup zone
     for the new domain yet. NO, the ip address does not belong to the same
     device, if I telnet to the address displayed on the object I do get to
     different devices.

     Other question, is there a way to delete an object directly out of the
     object database. If i search for an Object I cant find it anywhere, so
     trying to add it the system tells me that the object already exist. I
     also cleanout the entire system..

Is your Netview on Unix or on NT? Discovery works a little differently on
each. Assuming it is Unix, (and all of my experience is on AIX), this can
be caused by one of two things:

1) The addresses really do belong to the same device and the snmp agent
on that device reports that fact in its address and interface tables. That is,
there is one snmp agent on the device and it is responsible for all of the
interfaces you are seeing.
2) The name resolution for the addresses/names you entered in the seedfile
actually resolve to the same names/addresses. Netview will make a 'guess'
based on naming alone, especially if there is no snmp on the device, or it
can't talk snmp because the community is wrong. (At 5.1 and 5.1.1).

Name resolution has to work consistently and in both directions. Check it
with 'host' and 'nslookup' commands, on the names and on the addresses.

     Hi list, I hope some one can help.

     I add to my seedfile a couple of exsta devices stop and start netmon
     and then Netview start discover the devices. The problem is Netview
     then binds the address to one opject which was pervious discovered. So
     if you do a display Object Information the object got 4 ip interfaces.
     I deleted the object as well but no luck.

     Anybody knows whats wrong.
