I had another setup as LAB setup where I could see that the same Servers are showing proper Subnet Mask, hence I could conclude that the SNMP configuration is proper.

Please advice.

    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.
