Yes, call Support and open a problem.
Then review what has happened in your installation since before this started
occurring, because make no mistake, something did happen.  What was it?  You ran
out of file system space?  Something else changed?  The more you know when you
talk to Support the better.

And then start doing ps -ef and  grep for ipmap.  Is his process id changing?  I
would guess that it is.   Then he is either coring or exiting on bad objects in
your database. Look in /usr/OV/PD/cores/ipmap.   I would format the nettl logs
(netfmt -f  /usr/OV/log/nettl.LOG00  and LOG01) and look for errors from ipmap.
Then I would take down the GUI and try running ovtopofix -a  (-A) if you have
more than one map.

Don't want to do this?  Then you can try restoring your databases (that's all of
/usr/OV/databases/openview) from a backup and see if that works.  But a restore
to an earlier uncorrupted level is the only quick fix.

Subject:  [NV-L] synchronizing DB

Hi all

We have NV 5.1.2, FW 3.6.1. Maps are synchronizing since more than 24 hours
ago. I have tried every suggestion in Netview Diagnosis Guide, with no
success. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
