NetView himself has no name-to-address resolution mechanism - he uses whatever the host Operating System uses. That is, if all you have is a hosts file with the NetView box in it, everything else will have IP addresses as labels. It is strongly recommended that you have a reliable DNS employed by the NetView system (preferably with the NetView system acting as a caching / secondary DNS server).

how does netview look attempt to determine the name of a device.
i.e. in my location.conf file I am using names in place of IP addresses for my gateways. How does Netview resolve the name on a AIX box?
