I'm on Windows 2000 SP3 and Tivoli Netview 7.1.3 with Fixpack1.

I am getting duplicate nodes setup by Netview and I was wondering if there 
is something I could do about it.  I think I have tracked it down to the 
following.  A PC has two interfaces (SNMP is not running there).  Netview 
finds both addresses via its PINGing.  One address resolves through the 
DNS server so Netview fills in the correct name.  The other interface 
seems to resolve into the same name (but in uppercase instead of 
lowercase) and I believe this could be because of WINS.

I notice this because when I set up a smartset (eg. looking for port 137) 
it shows both the nodes (one uppercase and one lowercase).

Is there some way I can tell Netview that this is the same node with two 
interfaces (ie. merge them together somehow)?  The box in question is in 
fact a Windows PC with two interfaces (main and backup).

Does this imply that any box with more than one interface on it will 
generate more than one node if SNMP is not active?  I don't think I can 
tell my entire world to enable SNMP.  Is there something I could do with 
the LMHOSTS file or DNS to combat this?
