Unless some user with Switch Analyzer wants to post or send you the output 
of "nvUtil  G" I think you are out of luck, unless you call Support.

The NetView default smartsets are few and easy to recover.  For years the 
only ones we shipped were "NetViews" and "Routers" which are just built on 
the attributes, isManager=TRUE and isRouter=TRUE respectively.  My 7.1.3 
test systems also have "Cisco Devices" where the rule is ("vendor" = 
"cisco Systems") and that's the end of it.  Anything else you had was 
installed by the Switch Analyzer, and I know very little about that.

Thanks, but this isn't what I'm looking for.   (It is what I should have
done, but that's water under the bridge).   I've installed NV 7.1, 7.1.2,
7.1.3 and Switch Analyzer, and it seemed that the default smartsets 
between versions.

Anyway, I made the mistake of doing a full clear of the DB, followed by a
rediscovery.   It of course, lost the smartsets.  I can't recover, because 
don't have a backup.    There is a whole hierarchy of scripts under
/usr/OV/newconfig that seems to be templates for setting up defaults, but
nothing in there for creating smartsets.   There's also utilities to reset
the MIB binary database, etc. in order to return the NV server to the
uncustomized state.

Obviously the installer creates them somewhere, just wondering if anyone
knows where the install scripts are hidden.   Or knows what the rules are
for the initial default sets.
