Thanks for saying what I MEANT to say...
I missed the part of the unresolvable names which will print to the screen. 
Those are the ones which need to be removed / commented out in the seedfile,
and obviously the unreachable names will need to be investigated.

While we are on this subject, how can I redirect those unresolvable names
to a file as well? If the list is long, a "cut & paste" approach will be a
bit tedious.

A clarification on Kevin's observation:
Unreachable things in the seedfile are not a problem. But
unresolvable names in the seedfile ARE. If you do
ovstatus netmon
it will tell you if that is the problem and direct you to
/usr/OV/log/netmon.trace. That file will list all of the unresolvable
names so you can fix them. If netmon was down, it will fail to start.
If it was up and you did a 'netmon -y', it will refuse to reload the

Something similar was happening to me. This is what I did...

Check your seedfile. Use the fping command and route the output to a file,
e.g.:  fping -f objects.seed > objects.seed.output

You will get a list of objects wich are reachable and wich are not.
Comment out the unreachable objects in your seedfile.

I don't know if this will help in your case... perhaps it is worth a try.

Kevin Gow.

I have netview 6.0.1 on Solaris. If I start netmon about 2 minutes it is
I active de netmon trace and once of trace show netmon died by PMD, but in
Control desk in events show "netmon probably died: ungracefully
from trapd".

I running ovmapcount, ovtopofix, ... ovstop, ovstart, reset_ci, all
commands I
know for repair one problem, I view the file system, memory, and processor
it is good state.

What can i do?

Thanks to all.
