Sudha, you really need to do what Jane suggested when she said to read the comments in the file /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed. They are quite important; use a text editor to read them and probably to enter the seeds. The launch_seededit is good for small tasks but to add 500 nodes with that Java based editor would be a disaster. I avoid using it.
As to the speed of discovery, it depends on the network. Discovering 500 local nodes would be trivial, 500 remote nodes on slow links might take a little while but not a really long time. Clear the databases, put "@limit_discovery" at the start of the file and a dummy entry for a non-existent network at the end to stop discovery (I use 3.3.3.*). Once you manually build your maps get the tool from the NetView User's Group tools area and snapshot your location.conf file and netmon.seed file.
You should also take the advice to go to that class; it will save you a great amount of time. As Jane said, you're at chapter five of the current class material, chapter two of the 1998 version, and there are at least eleven chapters. Go to the class before you wear out your helpers on this mailing list.

Ok. Thanks for your prompt reply. Since im in remote location i cannot take the course right now. I'm also going through netview documents and i can see you guyz are doing great work here answering most of the questions. Can you please guide me for this seedfile discovery?
1. Do i need to clear the databases before implementing the new seed file?
2. When launching the see editor via launch_seededit, can we give the list of hostnames we need to discover in Set initial Discovery
3. Do we need to give anything in Limit Discovery--Limit by IP address?
4. How long it will take (say example 500 nodes) to discover approxiamtely?
Also, let me know if you anyone knows a mailing-list/Forums for TEC and ITM like the one you are having for Netview.
I need it for some event correaltion exercises.
