I wonder if you really need to do what you are trying to do.
Netview has very strict rules about what sorts of things can
be added, and where, and it is usually best to let the
discovery process create the appropriate submaps
and put things in them. The capability is there to create
your own submaps and put things in them, but like many
of those functions, they were designed for application
developers who plan to provide the management applications
to manage the things they add. If you expect Netview's ipmap
application to manage these things for you, then you should
probably focus on getting Netview to discover them for you.
You don't have free reign when it comes to submap
heirachy in the topologies that come with the product.
Ignore me if you know what you are doing. If you are not
sure, check the Administration Guide, Chapter 3.

below that, but cannot proceed further.
