First, do you have a recent database backup (a tar file of
/usr/OV/databases/openview)? They are good for the nerves.
That container sounds like a Location Icon created for you by definitions
the /usr/OV/conf/location.conf file. And you cannot cut and paste a
Icon anyway. Netview will not let you. Check the location.conf file, and
the /usr/OV/log/location.log for clues. I would probably stop everything,
remove the location.conf file for now, and restart everything and let the
run until the system idles out, then open a map and wait it out.
As for the long synchronizing, are you certain that it is unexpected, given
of the database and the size of the system and its load? Check
the nettl log for error messages to go along with the synchronizing. Check
'vmstat 5' to see if you are cpu or memory constrained. Do you have a
'top' or 'monitor' tool to tell you which processes are using all of the
resources? Have you kept the ovwdb cache setting high enough to
accomodate the object count? And have you considered the Turbo form
of the database (Appendix G in the Inst & config manual)? Or maybe
just a compression (same place).
If you have deleted (or cut) something central, like a core network, then
the map will
have a lot of work to do to delete all of the interfaces on that network.

Subject: [NV-L] Map Continually Synchronizing
I have Tivoli NetView6.1 AIX 4.3 I have 29k objects in my database and
growing. I recently run into the problem when adding objects to the map.
The objects appear in the New Object Holding Area, I drag the objects to
map, they resolve to containers, then I attempt to cut the objects from the
map. The Objects do not cut from the ip map. Whether I cut or delete the
objects they dont cut from the ipmap. I ran an ovmapcount -a and then an
ovtopofix- A and brought the map back up. Now the map will not stop
synchronizing. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Anyone have any
