I would like to be creative but well as presentable too.... the output of it is not what i can present to management, perhaps i need to use crystal reports or something to extract the info from the DataWarehouse? what say you?

Of course if you were feeling creative you could write your own code to extract the data directly from the database (perhaps using output from ovobjprint) You can also get the sysObjectID mib values from ovobjprint output.

RE: [nv-l] Inventory management through NetView

You can create a smartset and set the SNMP sysObjectID = (the ID for a 2950/24 switch) - You can get the ids for all cisco kit at www.cisco.com - (I found the 2950s at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/cscowork/ps2406/products_device_support_table09186a00800b5e7f.html )
Smartsets 101 (UNIX) If you have not created a smartset before... From the Tools menu Open Smartset Editor - Add -  (give your smartset a name and discription) - click the modify button for definition 1 (ensure Definition Type is set to Attribute) Find the SNMP sysObjectID attribute and set the string attribute value to = Then click OK.  You can test the definition (click test) this will give you a list of all matching objects.  Click OK and the new smartset gets created.
If you install the Cisco - NetView integration kit the smartset editor has a cisco attribute - can be useful (you also get natty cisco icons for the map - not alot else though, as far as I can see)
I am sure that other manufacturers also supply the sysObjectID mib values for their kit too.
Happy smartsetting...

[nv-l] Inventory management through NetView

Dear list,

Can we keep a track of inventory (switches,routers models) in NetView. I read it can be done using smartsets but don't know how exactly. Like if i want to make a smartsets for all Cisco 2950 switches how do i do it? or is there any other way to keep a track of that?
