That jobby is there to reflect status that is set by various components
of the Nways application. If you use the Fault Buster function in Nways,
it should tell you what it is complaining about. That said, I know I have
seen unwarranted snmp 'failures' reflected on the 2216s, even at V2.1.
You will probably need to pursue it with Nways support. Here's how I
explained it to the customer in one of my status documents (V1.2.3)
= = = = = =
1) 2216s and the ATM topology application: the Nways ATM application is
trouble polling the 2216s. They show up red in the ATM topology, and
ATM SAP card added by the application makes the 2216s yellow in the IP
The code was updated recently on these boxes but did not help. To
the color problem, you can do this: Administer...CML Smit...Maintain..
type in the two devices (R2216A, R2216B). Then you will have to go to
Device Manager topology, open the 2216 cluster where you will find two
2216s; select them and Edit...Delete.. From THIS submap. Then Tools...
Application Transporter....Refresh PSM Display. This will get them
back green in
the Nways Device Manager topology. This will be good until the next
time all of
the daemons are stopped and restarted, I think. Or you can ignore the
color of the
2216s unless it affects the lines to the remote sites, in which case
you will see it
reflected in the color of the lines.

Check out the support web site - maybe they've posted a solution by now.

Subject: [NV-L] ATM SAP Port - the wrong colour
We have a NetView 6.0.1 installation on AIX 4.3.3 with Nways 2.1. The map
is showing lots of ATM SAP Port symbols on a variety of IBM 2210 and 2216
On most of the routers, the colour of the symbol is green. However, on some
of them it is red or yellow. This does not make sense as the interface that
is related to the ATM SAP Port is green.
If we Acknowledge the ATM SAP Port and then Unacknowledge it, the status
changes to green. However, if we restart the GUI, the status of all of
these ATM SAP Port symbols changes back to red (or yellow) again.
Has anyone worked out how to fix this feature?
