Well, the numbers on the end of a selection name used to mean that what you had
was a duplicate object and since you cannot have a duplicate selection name,
NetView made one up by adding the object id as part of the name.  At least that
is what I recall.  So it would seem that it is time to do an ovobjprint and
redirect the output to a file so you can look through the entire database and
see if that if the case.

 It could be that you deleted this object from the map once upon a time, but it
did not really go away because there are fields associated with another
application which were still set.  But that's only conjecture on my part.  I
would do the ovobjprint, see what you can find, and then call Support.     You
may have to delete both the duplicate and the current one and re-discover to get
things right.

I would also do an nvutil and list the members of your collection just to be
certain what is and what is not a member.

Hope this helps

I'm running AIX4.3.2, NetView 5.1

I have selection names for interfaces which show up, such as:


Now, this test router only has 3 interfaces and no secondary addressing.
What's with the 17036 added at the end of the Ethernet5/0/7 part?

I've done ovtopofix and ovmapcount commands to try to clear
this up.

The problem with this is that I add these objects to my collection
set and then when Netview receives the trap that:


is down, it checks the collection and there's no
"router.name.edu:Ethernet5/0/7" in there!  Of course not, because
for some goofy reason, it's listed as:

What's going on here?

Thank you --Greg Redder
