Betreff:  [NV-L] Netview MLM Discovery

I have Netview 5.1 running under AIX 4.3.3 and Netview MLM 5 running on a
Solaris 7 box with the appropriate SEAs installed.
Netview can see the MLM and the C5d daemon has created the MLM Managers   
on the Netview GUI.
Traps generated through the MLM (via snmptrap) appear in the Events list   

So far - so good.

If I try and get my MLM to discover nodes in its network either via the
netmon -z option or by using smconfig on the MLM platform to change the   
config Netview will mark the MLM as being down. Trying to run smconfig on   
MLM box then fails
with an snmp community name error.
Attempts to stop and restart the midmand daemon using smmlm fail with an
snmp_connect() error in the midmand.log file showing that it cannot   
a listening service on the midmand port.
If I stop and restart the snmpdx daemon and then restart the midmand   
using smmlm -i (to ignore the restart file) I can then use smconfig to   
at the MLM config. I then issue a demand poll from the Netview GUI to the   
and it is again
marked as "up" but, of course, is still not discovering!
Has anyone ever seen this before?
