My customer has the following enviroment:   AIX 4.3.3,  NetView 6.0  and
Cisco Routers mod. 7500 IOS 11.2. The routers have  interfaces of the type:
fddi, atm,  ethernet and serial. IP addresses are defined only to the
ethernet interface. The router network is discovered through a seed file
that contain just the routers IP addresses, there is not a DNS.
He is testing the new features in NetView 6.0 and  noticed:
   the new fields IfSpeed and hasSerial are not in the object information
   of the router Cisco.
   it seems that there is not support (as suppose to be) for the unnumbered
   interfaces,  indeed are  discovered just the ethenet interfaces of the
   router. (netmon has  the flag -u) .  In Tools--->Display Object
   Information you can verify that  is reported  only the information
   regarding the ethernet interfaces.  Using the  MIB Browser you can read
   the IfDescr, Iftype, IfAdminStatus and IfOperStatus and  understand
   that  NetView is missing something in the discovery phase.
Has anyone ecountered the same problems before ?. Any idea ?.
