What is the mask you are seeing and the mask you expect to see as well as the subnet
address that NetView is showing and the correct subnet?

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
      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.
