Subject: Collections - Sorted List?
>I want a sorted list of devices in a collection (or location). The reason

>command line and automate the addition of the device to a collection, as
>well as adding the server to the netview database with the loadhosts
>command. The downside is that no matter what order I use on my command
>to add the devices to the collection, they don't get displayed on the
>in any kind of sorted order. Does anyone know a way to accomplish this
>Collections, or by some other means whereby the devices can easily be
>identified on the screen because they are grouped together in sorted order?
>I don't want to have someone dedicated to manually using the Netview GUI to
>move the objects around on the map.
