Re: [nv-l] ? about NV doing SNMP queries to PIX firewalls using "wrong"
Look for the ">" flag in the netmon seed file. The ">" includes the
properties of "=" which has the effect of fixing the interface used for

[nv-l] ? about NV doing SNMP
12/16/2005 05:23 queries to PIX firewalls using
PM "wrong" interface
Please respond to
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.
