Hello Everyone.
NetView 7.1.3 on AIX 4.3.3 ML10

I'm having troubles with NV deleting Sun server objects from the map. It is
important for us to know when these SUN servers have problems so I have
notification rules setup to page when they go down. I have the "!@oid 0"
line in netmon.seed to prevent NV adding non-SNMP supported devices to the

I noticed that the objects NV deletes no longer respond to snmpwalk as

The command "snmpwalk servername system"
        returns End of MIB or no MIB objects contained under subtree

The command "snmpwalk servername"
        returns about a page of sun.products.sunMasterAgent subtree objects
but no system subtree, etc.

I think it is this abnormal response that causes NV to delete the object. If
the response to the snmpwalk simply timed out, NV would not remove the
server from the map. Correct? The only way I could get NV to add the device
was to have the server admin run the /etc/init.d/init.snmpdx stop and
/etc/init.d/init.snmpdx commands.

Is there a way to prevent NV from deleting the object when its SNMP agent is
in this condition? I cannot remove the "!@oid 0" line in the netmon.seed

Thanks in advance.
