Well, it doesn't matter.
"isLANDevice" is not a field that NetView ships with, so someone or
something added it in your environment.
How?  You'll have to tell us, David.  In addition to Bill's suggestion of
nvdbimport, it might have been added by a ruleset, or by third-party
software (CiscoWorks?)

PS: 7.1.2 is out of support.  7.1.3 goes out of support at the end of the

      You haven't identified which version of NetView you are using but my
      Linux 7.1.4 NetView system does NOT have the isLANdevice capability
      field defined.  I would guess that your installation has added and
      set it themselves with NVDBIMPORT.

      Dear list,

      I have experienced a phenomenon which I can't explain and need your

      I created a smartset of all LAN devices (isNode=true and
      isLANdevice=true). But two exactly same Cisco switches, one is in the

      smartset and the other not. I used "Display object information" and
      found both have the same OID and SNMP agent (Cisco switch), but one
      isLANdeivce=True, but the other not. Can anyone give me hint?

      Thanks & regards,
      David Liu
