Netview gets the mask information from SNMP, we have seen in the past where the SNMP agent was reporting a mask that differed from the one shown in the setup of the interface. First, look at the information being provided by SNMP if it is incorrect there, it will be incorrect in Netview. If
this is the case it should be reported to the vendor of the device.

I have NetView 6.0.2 on AIX 4.3.3 with TIPN Installed, using Db2 as database

During accessing one of the TIPN Query for suspecision Subnet Mask, we modified the query for the subnets not used in our environment. and it is observed that few of the Servers showing wrong subnet mask.

When we confirmed with the Server owner department about the subnet, it is confirmed to be normal. When we checked through NetView Console Tools --> Interface details, this itself shows the wrong subnet mask for that Server.

Such type of not existant subnets are shown for large no. of Servers hence I had taken case of two such servers and deleted them form the Map, done ovtopfix and rediscovered them, but still the Mask is not proper.

Can U please advice how could we get the things restored.
