I have integrated NetView on
Solaris with CISCO on Solaris. Both are on different servers. Here is what
the menu button for CISCO application in NetView main console. Besides
CISCO icons on maps. CISCO has their own icons for routers and switches.
This is good because by just
at the icon on map you can tell what kind of a router/switch it

If you are integrating NetView and
Cisco which are on different servers. Cisco provides Solaris integration utility
have to install first on
your NetView server. This utility has a bug which prevents it being installed on
server. What this utility
does is installs necessary Cisco files and JRE on NetView server, those
are required to integrate
Cisco into NetView. The work

And then execute "nmic.sh"
script in /opt/CSCOpx/bin, which works well.
I tested this with
both software on Solaris. I have no idea how it will work with both
softwares on different platforms.
Please share your
experience with us.

installation from AIX to NT? Any suggestions/comments will be
