Have you configured the APM (C5d)?  You will need to do this before you get your
MLM collection icon.  Set up APM either via smit or the Tivoli Desktop - it's
off the Configure menu.  You don't expect an MLM to go in the NetView's
collection but to go into the MLM's collection.

Just a tiny one - are you sure that you have "Enabled" this setting - it's very
easy to setup all the details but leave the enabled/disabled box "Disabled".

By default, the config file that the MLM will use is
/var/adm/smv2/log/smMlmCurrent.config - if this hasn't been updated then I'd
start checking SNMP community names.  All your MLM configuration is achieved
using SNMP "set"s.  Assuming you are configuring your MLM from your NetView
system using the MLM Config menus, you must ensure that you have SNMP read AND
write access into your MLM system - test this out first and ensure that you can
change values on your MLM.
