James Shanks--

   I should be more explicit. NIC is a network interface card, and it is in
a SUN server, and the NIC card has 4 interfaces, each interface connects to 
a separate LAN segment, mostly just for high availabality. If one segment
down, the server can still be reached via three different addresses, across
different segments/nic interfaces. I only want to generate a node down to
from Netview if I detect that all four ip addresses are down.

Jim -

You can generate any trap you like using snmptrap, and you can use a ruleset
kick off  snmptrap using an Action node.  It is the rest of your note which
confuses me .

What's a NIC?  Does netmon poll it now?  Because there is no way you can
netmon from sending a Node down or Interface down,  if it is down, unless
unmanage it.   What trap are you thinking will drive this ruleset?

I only want to generate a node down if NIC1 AND NIC2 AND NIC3 AND NIC4 are
down. Can someone tell me if this do-able with a ruleset ? Each NIC
interface will have
a different ip address.
