Can you provide some details on how you added the "HTTP supported" fields to
the devices? Also, are you using the "HTTP managed" field at all? We are
trying to integrate the NetView and CiscoWorks web interfaces. We got it
working (somewhat), by manually defining the management URL for a device,
but would like some automated way of defining the database fields for all
the devices, and correctly setting the fields on newly-discovered devices.

We are managing all of this using NetView and Fore's Foreview. There are
numerous mibs to be loaded and traps to be defined - it would be a chore to
load and define all manually - the Foreview install does this for you with
one big gotcha - all of the Fore mibs are SNMP V2. Forget how, but somehow
you can change the install to execute xnmloadmib2 rather than xnmloadmib.
If you choose not to get Foreview then you should be able to get all of the
mibs you need from Fore. There are quite a few mibs to load for each of
The latest version of Foreview was for HP Openview only. We got HP Openview
for this reason only but we were so disappointed in the new version of
Foreview that we dumped it. Most of the Fore switches are HTTP supported. I
created collections on NetView for all our ATM switches, added the "HTTP
supported" to the objects, created another collection to capture any
switches which did not have the "HTTP supported" set so I could catch new
switches. This gives us just about all that HP Openview added to management
of these switches.
