Hi all,

First, sorry about the post. I know there are many posts related to
the same subject but the fact is that I could not solve my problem by
applying the solutions proposed on any of them.

Well, we have Netview 7.1.4 running on a Linux machine. I started
working with it just a few months ago but, at least in this period,
almost everything ever worked very very well. The only exception is
the status of a cisco 6509 switch, that remains down (red) on Netview
all the time. When I try a ping, its status changes to marginal but a
little bit after it turns down again.

As I said, I've read many posts about this topic. As far as I
understood, it must be a snmp status test problem, since the ping
works fine but snmp test do not. One thing which I think that
corroborates this thesis is the output of a quicktest, which gives:

Title: Quicktest
Name or IP Address: 6509cpd

11:15:31   Get number of interfaces
11:15:43 SNMP request timed out (
11:15:43 ***** End of Quick Test for node 6509cpd *****

Could this SNMP time out be my problem? How could I solve it?

Let me say that when I try MIB browsing at this switch everything goes
OK. Isn't it strange???

Thanks in advance,
