I would recommend this type of solution:

     1.  At EACH customer install an "Attended Distributed NetView".
          -   an NT NetView 5.1
          -   install on the SAME box the NT MLM 5.1 product
     2.  From your central NetView box you can push out the ovsnmp.conf, so
 you are maintaining
          only one set of community strings from a central location.
     3.  You did not say how many interfaces you were managing total.
Depending on that number
          I would put the entire customer's network into the
mlmDomain_xxxxxxxxxxxx collection
          so that the NT MLM would be polling the nodes for that customer.
    This is not necessary,
          but opens the door for them to use other NetView functions on
"their" nodes.
     4.  Assumption:  each customer should NOT be routed to one another as
additional safety.

Since they would be MIB browsing from a box in their network, they should
never see any other customer devices
since there are no routes and probably other firewalls between customer X
and customer Y.
