If  you make the modification in the segment submap, DON'T add it again at
IP Internet level. Just back up to the network level submap and
the segment symbol. The router will be propogated up to the network submap,
will also appear on the IP Internet submap as a new node. That's how it
should work,
anyway. If it is messy now, delete the thing and start again.

I believe I have been having the same problem Dave has and I believe I
followed Leslie's directions but I still cannot get NetView to draw the
picture correctly.

1. On the segment map, I changed the icon representing a router from a
computer to a gateway.
2. On the network map, I added a gateway symbol. It appears blue on the
network map but NetView automatically drew a connection between the gateway
icon and the segment icon where it placed the router (mentioned in #1).
3. When I drill down on the blue (unknown) gateway symbol (on the network
map), there is an IP  card, created by NetView, which is green.
4. When I look at the segment map that contains the router NetView actually
discovered as a host (mentioned in #1),
the symbol NetView discovered as a host is now blue (unknown) but when I
drill down on that object, its underlying IP card is still green.  NetView
also added another gateway icon which is also blue (unknown) and it also
has an underlying IP card that is green.

I thought once a vertex (I think the IP cards are vertexes) is known to
NetView, its status would propagate up to the parent node.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Anne

If you set up name resolution so that all interface addresses for this
resolve to the same name, then Netview will draw it as a router on its own.

When you add a node, you should be selecting the class 'connector' ( a
diamond), then the gateway symbol (router, with compass points), enter the
hostname and then select IPmap properties. It will have filled in the
that goes with that name; correct the mask if necessary. You will have to
the the submap under the created node and add the other interface(s).

But you can avoid this by just setting up the names. Netview will trust you
and draw a router.

How does one add an object to the network map that will represent a gateway
that has two interfaces. I get as far as the gateway object but I don't
to see a way to add the interfaces for this router device. Since my routers
don't support snmp, netview thinks it is a computer during discovery so I
need to change this and add both interfaces to the object.
