The problem is that you cannot simply pipe or paste the results into the
command, you must alter the punctuation.  Please see the man page on the nvUtil
command.  There is an example of "nvUtil a" there.  Notice that you enclose the
parens in the rule within quotes, because the k shell will not accept them on
the command line otherwise.  Also, you do not specify  labels such as
"Collection: " or "Description" or "Rule" when using the 'a' option.  These
items are positional and you simply state them in the required order.  Enclosing
them quotes also will  help if they have spaces within them.

James,
     When I did a nvUtil G I got:
Collection: AllBayEnet
     Description: All Bay Enet
     Rule: ('isSnpxEnet' = True)
Next collection...

     I ftp'd this file over to the other box. In a terminal window I did a
nvUtil a and then pasted the first collection rule.  In the windows it
looked like:

prompt>nvUtil a Collection: AllBayEnet
     Description: All Bay Enet
     Rule: ('isSnpxEnet' = True)
Add failed: Invalid syntax for rule or blank rule specified
prompt>/bin/ksh: Description:: not found.
prompt>/bin/ksh: 0403-057 Syntax error: '(' is not expected.

My only guess was when I pasted the stuff on the line it took the carriage
returns as literals and did not keep everything together as 1 command.
Since I got 2 more prompts trying to run the other lines.

That's how you would do it, basically.  But of course, some smartsets of
the
same name may already exist on your target box, so would would not be able
to
add those.  What errors did you get?

Hello,
     Is there a way to move SmartSets from 1 NetView to another NetView?  I
tried nvUtil G to list all SmartSets with the rule and piped this to a file
and tried to run this into the nvUtil a to add it back in but it did not
like it.

     Thanks for the help.
