Hi Catalina,

To inform a new device to NetView you should do the following:
  1. include the new OID in the oid_to_type file
  2. include the Vendor of the device, if it does not exists, in the ovw_fields file (if included in the oid_to_type file)
  3. include the SNMP agent type in the snmp_fields file (if included in the oid_to_type file)
  4. include the proper device type for the new OID at the oid_to_sym file
  5. delete the objects that u want to be properly discovered
  6. run the ovw_fields command
  7. run the ovw_config command
  8. run the ovw_verify command
  9. stop the NV GUI
  10. run ovstop netmon
  11. run ovmapcount -vu
  12. run ovtopofix -a
  13. run ovstart netmon
  14. restart the NV GUI

All the best,

Mario Behring

Subject: [nv-l] Symbols - Converting generic Icons



AIX 5.2 ML6, Netview 7.1.4 FP4


Trying to convert a "generic icon" for an AP (in this example).


1) GOT the oid for the Access Point.

2) entered it on the oid_to_sym file Fast Hub:cisco-AP1200Family

3) verified that file definition existed.--

SymbolType "Cisco Fast Hub" : "cisco-AP1200Family"
        Filebase "ap1200";
        CursorSize 38;
                ciscoType = "cisco-AP1200Family";
                isCisco = 1;

4) Double checked bitmaps:

/usr/OV/bitmaps/C:ls ap1200*

ap1200       ap1200.26.m  ap1200.32.p  ap1200.44.m  ap1200.50.p

ap1200.20.m  ap1200.26.p  ap1200.38.m  ap1200.44.p

ap1200.20.p  ap1200.32.m  ap1200.38.p  ap1200.50.m




Everything looks ok. Just wondering why when Netview discovers an AP is does not put the right icon. It displays a generic one. I can do modify-change symbol type and can select/change to the AP symbol.


What else do I have to do make Netview automatically put the right symbol? or I always have to go in manually and edit-> change symbol type?
