The ipmap application is what reads that file, and it reads it at map open. A rediscovery is not necessary.
Here's how  I do it.

Method #1: the location.conf is pretty close to correct, I'm making small revisions or additions:
1) Update the location.conf
2) Close the map
3) Open the map
4) Delete and rediscover the things that need to be moved.

Method #2: major revision of the map
1) Update the location.conf
2) On the default map, 'File..New Map'. Name it something like 'test2'. Wait for it to draw the map.
3) Evaluate the results. Check /usr/OV/log/location.log.
4) Repeat with new map names as necessary
5) When you like what you have, 'File...Open Map', select 'default', and delete it.
6) 'File...Save Map ' and save it as 'default'
7) 'File...Open Map' and switch to the default map
8) 'File..Open Map' and select and delete all of the test maps until you only have 'default' left.
9) run 'ovmapcount -a' to get rid of symbol references to the discarded maps.

Note: do NOT run 'ovmapcount' during the time when you don't have a map called 'default'.
Note: the location.log may complain about every single location even though they are correct.
Sometimes it does this, and sometimes it does not (like when you are trying to report it to Support..)
If you are sure it is correct, and it puts things where you want them, ignore it.

Please respond to

[nv-l] Location.conf file changed

Hi All:
Is there any way to force Netview to re-read the location.conf file without going for a whole map rebuild?
We are adding new segments to our network and we do not wont to lose our existing map customization.
PS: Netview 7.1.3 FP2 Solaris 8.
