If you need to add lots of machines "manually" then look at the loadhosts command. It is a scripted way of manually adding several nodes to the NetView database.

Thanks glen and I have tried this usual force discovery (Seed file and pinging), but not getting discovered on the map. Do we have another mechanism to add a device manually and start monitoring on NetView?

Best regards,

We have several similar issues. Have you tried adding those hostnames or IP addresses to the seedfile? If not, you can access it by going to Options - Netmon Seed Editor. Highlight set initial discovery seeds - then hit add and either enter the IP or the hostname (make sure it's the "nearest hop" interface though). Just hit save and answer yes when asked to update the network monitor. Try a ping a few seconds later and typically it will appear. I've had many nodes on the back side of firewalls and VPNs where this is the only way to get them discovered.

I am running Netview 7.1.4 with FP03 on win2k Server. I have a Router and Firewall to monitor at the remote location

My NMS can reach (ping and snmp) these devices through a VPN (Cisco PIX 515 to Router 2611) and I am able to do ping and SNMP-Walk on these devices. But I am not able to discover these devoices on my NetView MAP by following the usual methods (seed file, pining etc). Also my VPN connectivity from the local PIX (This is displaced on the MAP) to remoter router is also not displayed.

Please share your thoughts on the force discovery or possible problems.
