Hi list,
i have a problem with IBM 3745 router.

This central router is connected to many routers. It has 6 interfaces and each
interface owns a name in the DNS
The loopback adress is set to

The discovery process worked fine at the beginning, the central router (IBM
3745) was discovered and all other router connected were discoverd.
After a few seconds, all remote routers were deleted and eventually the central
router was deleted.
Then the central router was discovered again with a different name.

I used netmon with -P and -S options for secondary address support and
unnumbered interfaces.
I tried to name all interface in my /etc/hosts file in order to pass through
name resolution.
Right now te central router is well discovered and is no more deleted but other
router directly connected to it are still deleted once discovered.

What is very strange is that if i click on the hilight buton on the trap saying
that my central router is now a gateway i receive an error message:

  nnt36 s not a valid hostname.

If i launch:    ovobjprint -s nnt36 i have the folowing result:

 ovobjprint -s nnt36
