Hi, Rob. I'm way behind. I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do here. I assume you mean layer2 switches, so they don't show up at the IP Internet level of the map. They should be flagged in oid_to_type as H or B so they show up in the Network level submaps, right? And you are looking for a way to identify, preferably from the top level, where these things are?

One thing you could do is to promote them to the IP Internet level of the map by adding a G in the oid_to_type file. I don't think that would hurt anything. Depending on how many of them you have, it would add clutter to the map. If they are cut and pasted into location submaps, that should be fine, thought. To see the full effect of this, for each oid you change, you need to do an ovtopofix -u <oid>   and then probably close and open the map.

If I have not understood the question, ask again...

[nv-l] Poor switch navigation

I am looking for an efficient method to navigate to switches on the IP map. It is hard to determine which network the switches are in. Have toyed with the idea of changing the  network symbols if a switch is in the submap.

We have smartsets for each switch type, but this is hard too since it is not based on location.
Any suggestions?
