RE: Duplicate ip addresses in network.
I wonder if the way you specified the negative entries is valid. To exclude
both 192.168.10.150 and 192.168.10.151 adresses from the discovery, I think
you must specify this : !192.168.10.150-151
Moreover on Netview 5.1.2 (NT), it exists a registry key that netmon uses to
allow/avoid duplicate address :
(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tivoli\TME 10 Netview\AllowDupIpNames) but I do
not know if this registry key still exist on Netview 6.0.1(NT)

Subject: [NV-L] Duplicate ip addresses in network.
The network I work on has been customized with duplicate addresses of
192.168.10.150 and 192.168.10.151. These addresses were assigned to
a total of eight platforms/hosts (i.e., four have addess of 192.168.10.150
four have address of 192.168.10.151). The network architect felt it was
okay to do this because 192.168.10 is considered a "private network" and
is not routed over the network. The platforms with these addresses contain
additional network cards which are unique and which are what I really
want to monitor.
I have tried via a seedfile to get netmon to ignore these addresses
(i.e., !192.168.10.150-192.168.10.151) but netmon still finds the
addresses...because of the other network addresses in these platforms, I
I see in the NetView Diagnsis Guide the documented solution is to "Correct
problem in your network". However, it would be more desirable if I could
just get NetView to ignore the duplicate addresses. Does anyone know
another way to get NetView to ignore the duplicate addresses but still
rest of the platforms?
Thanks, Anne Schahfer
