You have not specified which container to put the objects into because you want to split them between two containers.

You cannot do that.  You cannot split a single subnet ( into multiple containers.

Here’s an improved location.conf file that I experimented with. Note my changes. I gave Almeria a “0” network because of this problem.

NetView cannot place the routers into the desired containers because they are in the same IP-subnet which cannot be split between Almeria and Alava.

NetView does not know where to place the network. Almeria or Alava, therefore, it simply puts it on the top-level map.

How are you spanning cities with the same subnet?

This cannot even be done manually with cut/paste without causing the objects to go to the user plane (bad).



Spain 172 State

Lugo 172.17 City Spain

Lugo 172.22 City Spain

Lugo 172.29.62 City Spain

Almeria 0 City Spain

Alava 172.18 City Spain

Alava 172.21 City Spain








Also, regardless of what you have been told or read, you do NOT have to restart automatic map generation or create a new map to pickup changes in this file.

Simply do the following to pick up additions:

1.       ovstop netmon

2.       ovtopofix –A

3.       ovstart netmon

4.       Close and reopen the read/write map


To delete locations, edit them out of the location.conf file and edit/delete the locations from the map.

I have a sandbox NetView that I can use if you need more help.  Just ask.


Best regards,


Don Davis
