Have you checked the obvious?
First is there a correct entry for both localhost and the actual host name 
of this box in /etc/hosts?
Does snmpd.conf have public as a read community name?  Or is the name in 
Does the rest of snmpd.conf look OK?
Is snmpd running?   startsrc -s snmpd / stopsrc -s snmpd    (on AIX)
Can you do snmpwalk to your own box?  snmpwalk -c  <community_name> 
<hostname> system
Now, is mgragentd running?  He's the guy who would populate the MIB which 
would make this a manager.
Look in his log in /usr/OV/log for errors.  Don't see any?  ovstop and 
ovstart him.  If you see errors, verify that his entries in snmpd.conf and 
snmpd.peers match.

After fresh install of version 7.1.2 (standalone) on a new server NetView
will not automatically discover anything beyond the subnets found on 
which have interfaces on NetView's local subnets. I have configured netmon
to discover all networks. One thing I have noticed, the NetView host does
not show up in the Managers submap, is set to "IsManager  FALSE", and if I
do a demandpoll I get "SNMP error: no such name"  following the "Get 
Product Name". Any suggestions?
