Hi List

Solaris 2.8;NV713 plus latest SP.  We can no longer demand poll any devices,
I suspect, but not sure, since the latest patch was applied, hmmm, perhaps

Demand poll after the "Get System Identifier" line comes back with "SNMP
Request Timed Out".  Nothing has been reconfigured recently on NetView.  If
we trace SNMP on the router, we see error-stat 2's throughout the trace.
snmpwalking the routers works fine from the NV host.

SNMP Collect Configuration........
The default community name we use is not the same as used on these routers.
The SNMP strings for the router subnets were originally added into "IP Add
Wildcards", (e.g. 172.25.*.*) and are still there.
If we add each router into the "Specific Nodes", demand poll now works.
If we change the default SNMP community strings to match the routers, and
remove the Specific Nodes, everything works.

It looks like the IP Wildcards is simply not working.  Am I missing
something here, like how snmp configuration works?  

Thanks, Leonard
