Thread-topic: Network:Frame Relay - problem / solution
I am building NV7.1.5 on a new AIX5.3 server.
I have around 900 Frame Relay network symbols in my new object holding area.
My Frame Relay networks are all IP. (Aren't they all?)
NetView v7.1.5 now recognizes Frame Relay networks.
However they are not registered as IP networks and therefore cannot be cut/pasted into a Location.
If you try, They are placed on the User Plane.
Edit the /usr/OV/symbols/C/Network registration file.
Copy the Capabilities section from the "IP Network" clause to the "Frame Relay" network clause, as indicated below.
This will add isIP=1 which is what is required for a symbol to be placed under a Location.
Then run ovw_configure to re-read this symbol registration file.
I also deleted and rediscovered the Frame Relay networks.
SymbolType "Network" : "Frame Relay"
        Filebase "fr";
        CursorSize 38;
        Capabilities {
                isIP = 1;

Hope this helps someone,
Don Davis
