Loadhosts is tricky.  It is much better to build a seed file of devices to
discover and configure netmon to use it.

You didn't mention whether you also used serversetup to configure netmon to
manage devices which are added by loadhosts.  By default it does not and
you have to configure the option.  Type serversetup from the command line
then Configure--> Set Options for daemons --> Set options for topology,
discovery and database daemons --> Set options for netmon daemon.  You can
also edit the seed file from there.

You didn't mention whether you had updated the SNMP options with the
correct community string fro these Cisco devices.  Type xnmsnmpconf from
the command line to do that.  Unless netmon can talk to those devices using
SNMP he will not know about their other interfaces and they may all be
discovered as separate objects.  Once you get the community string updated,
try selecting a node from the map and doing a demandpoll
(Test-->Demandpoll) and see whether any SNMP responses are returned.

Hello all

I am newbie for Netview, my experience are on NNM HP Openview
I have Netview 7.1.4 FP04 installated on Solaris 2.8 with net-snmp v2
I have userd for test a few our network Cisco devices, these are loaded by
loadhosts utility and are discovered correctly but when I open the icon I
can see only the loopback interface, the others interface are missed.
With the utility  Monitor| MIB value | Interface Info the interfaces are
listed correctly; all Cisco MIBs are loaded

Anyone can help me?
thanks in  advance
