I've seen that happen several times, usually when I get impatient and try
to force discovery by manually adding something to the map. The messages
you are seeing don't have anything to do with it, that's all normal. I
it often has to do with something either having a duplicate IP address, or
being partially discovered already. The best way I have found to get
one of these stubborn nodes to be discovered is the same as always:
stop netmon, delete all traces of the node from the map (all submaps) (and
all maps, if you  have more than just the default map), ovtopofix  (see the
man page for -a or -A), put one entry in the seedfile for this node, and
restart netmon. Then just wait. It should show up on its own. Do watch the
events display for complaints of duplicate IP addresses, however. I have
some suspicions in that area.

We have just loaded Netview Unix v 6.0 on AIX 4.3.3

Problem : I have node 10.255..253.253 which has a different Community name
to the one I am using.
In snmp config I add the node with the correct community name and then I
demandpoll it, and at the of the demandpoll I get the following

17:05:10     interface Serial3/0:29-Bearer does not have an IP address
17:05:10     interface Serial3/0:30-Bearer does not have an IP address
17:05:10     interface Virtual-Template1 does not have an IP address
17:05:1217:05:12 ***** Node deleted by netmon *****

This router  a CISCO 3600 has 101 interfaces on it of which 5 have IP

Can anyone tell me how to resolve this and why it is happening.

P.S. I demandpoll on my other NetviewAIX v 5.1.2 AIX 4.2.1
and it lists all the interfaces but does not delete the node at the end.
