"isLANDevice" is not a field that NetView ships with, so someone or

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.

isLANdevice=true). But two exactly same Cisco switches, one is in the

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,
