I do the same thing as a backup, but have new node discovery disabled:

# Discover snmp managed nodes only

I didn't really like all the stub objects I got in the database, so I run w/
discovery disabled and use the seed
file to add new objects. I've got 30,000 objects, 14,000 were stub objects
due to the seed file. We only care about network gear.

I also create a backup seed file in case something happens to my database.
Everything I care about is in a collection, so I dump all the members of my
collections to a file once a week. I also dump all devices in the object
database once a week.

Here's the script I use from cron:

# Setup variables
netmonseed=/usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.bak
netmonseed1=/usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.obj.bak

# Copy previuos netmon seed file to old
copy /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.bak /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.old 2> /dev/null
copy /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.obj.bak /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.obj.old 2>
/dev/null

# Remove old seed file
rm -f /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.bak
rm -f /usr/OV/conf/netmon.seed.obj.bak

# Create seed file
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l All_Cisco_Routers > $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l All_Hubs >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Chase_Terminal_Servers >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Dallas_Servers >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Firewall >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l NetViews >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Paradyne_Frame_Saver_DSU >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l ARLAN_630E_RF_Access_Points >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Mainframe >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l Stratus >> $netmonseed
/usr/OV/bin/nvUtil l mlmGroup >> $netmonseed

# Create another seed file with all objects in database
/usr/OV/bin/ovobjprint | grep "IP Hostname" | awk -F \" '{print $2}' >
$netmonseed1

I also take weekly full system backups.

Ralph, if your seedfile is working for you, stick with it. It may only
be a question of style. Taken by themselves, the only difference I
know of between the [email protected] 0 and the @oid 1.3.6.1.* is the chance
that [email protected] 0 will allow the discovery of things with badly formed
oids, such as you sometimes see on firewalls.

I do have suspicions, based on poorly-recorded notes I took at
an update and observations at a number of customer sites, about the
order of precedence between negative and positive entries of the oid
and address-range types, that lead me to use the [email protected] 0. But you
should not change what is working for you. There is a certain amount
of voodoo involved here.

I think most people do it the way you are doing it. Anyone else?

Cordially,

Hi, forum!

In a recent posting I found the following...

[email protected] 0             # exclude non-snmp things

Until now I've used something like...

@oid 1.3.6.1.*   # discover SNMP-stuff only, except...

Question: Should I switch to the "new" version? Do I miss something?
Any info appreciated.
