Where do I find the /usr/OV/doc/PixFailoverReadme.pdf file? The
production Netview is running AIX 5.2 ML 04 Netview 7.1.4 FP02. I did
not find the file.
ON the backup Netview, running the same OS level and Netview 7.1.4. Just
today, I've installed FP02 and FP03 and I still don't find the
Just from the release notes for the Pix failover, it states to enter on
Do we enter ip address for the primary and secondary(failover) pix? or
just the primary?
At this point to we do netmon -y to recycle the seed file. Is there
anything else that we need to do to the node itself? demandpoll ?

PIX Firewall Failover support
IBM Tivoli NetView provides support for monitoring the Cisco PIX
Failover conditions. NetView can monitor the failover state of the PIX
devices during normal status polling. When a failover occurs, a new
is generated announcing whether the active addresses are on the primary
secondary device. In addition, the operator can see on the map when the
active addresses are on the secondary device, which indicates that a
failover has occurred and action should be taken to prevent a further
failure that disables the firewalls. The management interface shows
status, which is usually purple (by default). This propagates to change
PIX device symbol to marginal. When the active addresses are returned to
the primary device, an event announces this fact and the status on the
returns to Normal.
Use the netmon.seed file to configure both the PIX Firewall Failover
machines and to set and lock the SNMP address.
For more information on the PIX Firewall Failover support see the
Set and lock SNMP address
A NetView administrator can now set and lock the SNMP address for any
