I'm having a "good" time trying to get alias table updates to my NT MLMs.
In one case I created a collection of all Cisco routers that I then
assigned to the mlmdomain_mlm_host_name in the MLM's collection.  In
another case I assigned certain subnets to mlmdomain_mlm_host_name via the
Collection Editor.  In both cases, I cannot get netmon to update the MLM
Alias Tables.

I have placed an entry netmon's SMNP configuration for both MLMs, giving
the read/write community names as "public."  I have modified the NT MLM
ovsnmp.conf to assign "public" as read/write.  Additionally, I assigned the
community name "public" to the WinNT SNMP daemon.  Tivoli Support suggested
that I delete all entries in the MLM Trap Destination Tables, then recycle
netmon.  They said that netmon would re-discover the MLMs and then download
the Alias Tables within a few netmon scan cycles.  When I do this, the only
thing I can see happening is a new entry for netmon appears in the Trap
Destination Table.  Then sometime later, I will find alias definitions for
all the hosts on the physical subnet the MLM is plugged into.

Needless to say, I'm probably doing this all wrong.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Dave Taylor
