Re-Discovery under NetView 5.1 on AIX
I have come upon a NetView 5.1 under AIX that
has been set up and running for about nine months.
When it was initially set up, the seed file contained
entries that basically told netmon to discover
everything, which it did. Now we want to eliminate
all of the workstations from the monitoring, and
I have added entries to the seed file to tell netmon
to ignore these (by IP ranges). None of these workstations
appear on any submaps that have been created.
So the question is, how do I force a re-discovery with
the intent of purging these workstation objects from
all of the appropriate databases.
So far I have:
1. Run netmon -y to tell netmon to reload the seed
file and confirmed from netmon.trace that it did
reload the seed file.
2. Done an ovstop and ovstart several times.
3. Confirmed that under the Topology/Status Polling
Conf, that everything is turned on.
However, it appears that netmon is still remembering about
the workstations because we are still getting Interface up/down
and Node up/down events from netmon about these workstations.
I seems like this would be an ongoing administrative thing to
have to do, ie force a purging of old IP addresses from the
databases, not only in this case, but in cases where IP addresses
are changed by the network wizards.
