No, it is not a bug.
The way collmap works is that it relies on what has been already done by
netmon and ipmap, and it copies the existing symbol for that object when it
is added to the collection. Under normal circumstances, it never has to do
that again. By chnaging the symbols, for whatever reason, you made the
mismatch, so now you have to fix it.
If you think that collmap should be expanded to re-check all symbols when
it is started, the way ipmap does, then you should request this enhancement
by sending a note to netview AT tivoli DOT com.

Fist of all, Thank you for you help.
OK, but supose that you have a lot of collections that you already created.
Delete and Create this collections is a little combersome. Is there any
dynamic way ?. After all, is it a bug ?

Try deleting the collection and open it again after it turns "blue". It
should "re-collect" the device with correct icon.

Subject: Netview 5.1 and Collections
I have the following problem:
When I create a collection (routers colleection), the
objects's symbols that appear in the submap collection is the same that
appear in the IP Map.
Now, when I change the symbol's routers type, the change
take effect on IP Map, but on Collection subma, remains the old symbol.
I executed ovtopofix -A but nothing change.
Any advise ?
