|Thread-topic:||? about NV doing SNMP queries to PIX firewalls using "wrong" interface|
NV 7.1.4 on RH Linux AS 2.1 w/ FP3
I am discovering many new networks @ a new datacenter. I have a handful of Cisco PIX 515 firewalls running 7.0.x code. I'm able to config SNMP on the FWs and discover them - but a few seconds after discovery they turn red. When I run a demand poll, it fails. I've trace the problem down to NV trying to use a different interface (more hops away) on the firewall for queries. If I browse map and query with nearest interface (as configured in PIX) it works great. I've tried modifying the object properties/general attributes/SNMP ipaddress and setting it to the interface IP I want it to use, but still same results. I only have 1 entry in /etc/hosts for this device and though I use DNS there are no entries for this firewall.
Any ideas on how I can force Netview to use a specific IP or interface? I do want to monitor all the interfaces - but thru the "inside" interface so I don't want to set the others to unmanaged.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated,

PS. This is a failover pair, so I have modified the netmon.seed file with 2 entries preceeded by > too.
