Re: Fw: Cisco Cat5500-RSM
I have a PMR opened for the same issue. I too am querying a node with the
same OID you state below. Below is what I received so far from official NV
"You do not want to have the S flag set in the oid_to_type file for
a HSRP device. This can create problems with NetView handling HSRP (per
DNS name resolution is not required for HSRP support. Without name
the selection name will default to the ip address instead of hostname."
It is strange that many users have stated to put the "S" flag in the
oid_to_type file, yet NV support says not to for HSRP discovery.
I have not had any luck in getting the HSRP address to show yet either.
I'll post something as I get more info.

Thank you for the response. I removed the external DNS lookup and the
problem went away.
What should the oid_to_type entry look like? And do I have to modify any
In Netview the OID associated with the RSM is 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.168. Is this
correct for HSRP?
Thanks in advance

I saw similar symptoms on the symbols for our Cisco routers running HSRP
(Hot Standby Routing Protocol) when running NetView 5.1 on AIX 4.3.2. I'm
not sure what version you're running. Our problems were fixed in NetView
1) oid_to_type flags: Do you have the 'S' flag set for devices using HSRP?
2) DNS: are the DNS forward/reverse definitions using the HSRP address?
This could confuse discovery/config checks.

255.255.252.0. NETMON discovers the IP addresses, ok. The Event display
window shows Added and 10 minutes later it shows Deleted for the same
interfaces. This 2 switches are up all the time and function as backup to
eachother(hot stand by). We are also using vlans.This problem was NOT there
on NV 4.2.1.
