[nv-l] Netmon not starting - "Cannot open icmp socket" error

Hi list,

I have a NV 7.1.4 FP04 running on a Windows 2000 Server box. Everything was fine when suddenly the netmon daemon stopped...........and now I get this error message at the ovstatus output and netmon does not start anymore.

I´ve checked the nv.log file and found these lines there:

03/15/06 16:13:15 [netview] Parsing configuration file D:\usr\ov\conf\c\explore.conf
03/15/06 16:13:18 [nmpolling] Failed to connect to netmon's shared memory segment; error: The system cannot find the file specified.

I looked for this error at the IBM website but I´ve found only an explanation for AIX machines.

Another thing............this is the second time this error happens on the present machine, a NEC Express 5800 with 4 processors and 1.5GB RAM. The first time took place at the beggining of the discovery process, so I´ve just uninstalled NV and installed it again. But now I have too many objects already discovered so.................

Is it possible that this problem could be a hardware thing ???? Judging by the "netmon's shared memory segment" part of the error message. Just a thought.......

Any help is appreciated.
