I was unfamiliar with the location.conf but will check it out.
The items (virtually all) have been cut from the root map and pasted
into one of the 5 submaps. All except one (which I know why) is NOT
shadowed. The items have the same properties they did before the cut
(isIP, isRouter, isSNMPSupported, etc). They are under the IP Internet
map (see sample below)
COMPANY1 COMPANY2 COMPANY3 COMPANY4
IP DEVICES IP DEVICES IP DEVICES IP DEVICES IP DEVICES
Symbol status is normal and compound/propogated.
Since I've already cut and pasted everything (about 2000 devices) can I
use the location.conf or do I need to do a full rediscover / rebuild?

"failing resources" found in submaps
I would agree with Paul. The code that makes up ipmap is always
checking to see what kind of object it is dealing with, and what kind of
parent object it has, to decide how to set status. I haven't worked on
it for seven years but I do remember that. So it might be easily
confused if the parent is an unexpected object. And between the IP
Internet symbol and the routers and networks, it's expecting only
Having said that, Glen, what kind of objects did you cut-and-paste
things into? If you right-click them for object properties, what are
what status do they have? Are they shadowed? Are they under the IP
Internet symbol (good idea) or on the same level with it (bad idea)?
If you right -click for symbol properties, when you check the symbol
source what does it say? Is it compound propagated or not? If not,

Please respond to
Cutting and pasting can be hazardous. Have you considered using the
location.conf to properly place the devices?
