Hi Scott,
Not sure if nvsniffer can execute remote commands, but I would do one of the following.
Run a nslookup for a particular domain and point to a specific DNS server
grep for a valid return, either by looking for no errors or a returned IP and if it fails.
1.  Send a custom trap to NetView
2.  Send a postemsg (not really NetView related)

Hi all,
Environment:  NetView 7.1.3, Solaris 8
Is there a way that I can configure NetView to monitor a DNS service?  I know I can configure nvsniffer to monitor the port, but I'm interested in setting up a monitoring solution to ensure that the DNS Server is able to respond correctly to a record query. 
If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
