My experience is:

Do not acknowledge a Node

Do not acknowledge a Location

Do not acknowledge a Network

Do not acknowledge a Segment

Do not acknowledge a SmartSet


In other words, DO NOT acknowledge anything except an Interface.

The behavior you are seeing is caused because you are acknowledging the Node, but the failing interface still remains Critical and is propagating as designed.

We are using NetView 7.1.4 FP3 on Windows. I am facing a problem when a child node goes down for some reason the status of Parent changes to yellow which is Normal. But when i acknowledge the "DOWN" child-node the parent still stays Yellow, isn't the status of parent dependent on child? I have to manually change that object properties to "Propagate status from Child". In case of a router this gets more difficult because all the networks connected to it turns out to Yellow (Marginal).
