You need to find the nodes on the other ends of those connections
before Netview will draw those unnumbered interfaces. This is because
Netview always wants to draw a network for every interface, and
unnumbered interfaces are drawn with straight line networks rather than
bubble networks, and you just can't have these sticks sticking out of
the router without something on the other end. So discover the router
(with snmp access to it) that these interfaces connect to. Netview has
never drawn unnumbered interfaces without a remote device in the map.

In some cases you won't be able to. For instance, if the connection is to
an ISP where you don't have snmp access and they won't give you
snmp access. In that case, I would suggest using the Agent Policy Manager
to poll the Oper status of those interfaces. That will create icons for you
in the node submap, and and set their status for your.

Subject:  [NV-L] NetView not showing non IP interfaces


I have a small network which has "Passport" frame
relay switch. It has one ethernet port and 60+ Frame
Relay ports.

My NetView (6.0.1 AIX 4.3.3) discovers the Switch with
the LAN IP address. Once I double click on the device
icon, it shows only the Ethernet interface. Rest of
the FR ports are not shown.

If I do an SNMP query "ifOperStatus", it shows all the
interfaces and their actual status.

I created seed file with entry of address of the
switch with a prefix "$". Still the discovered switch
does not show the FR interfaces.

Suggest a solution.
