I believe what you are describing is related to name resolution.
The Interfaces whose node name could be resolved AT DISCOVERY TIME are
registered in the object database as <router_name>:<interface_ip>....
If the router name could not be resolved AT DISCOVERY TIME, the interface
will be called <router_ip>:<interface_ip>.
Pull down: Tools-->Display Object Information to verify what name was
The only way to fix this is:
1.Verify that the router name resolves.
2. Delete and rediscover the interfaces or better yet, the router.

Hope this helps,

Subject: [NV-L] Smartsets and object labels


I'm having a small smartset  problem in Netview 6.0.1 for Solaris.
Generally speaking, this smartset is supposed to show only router
However, some are shown as


... while others have just IP addresses as their labels.

(On the topology map, all interfaces are shown just with their IPs.)
How can I make my smartset show all interfaces using only the
<router_name>:<interface_ip> label I've mentioned before ?

... and no, I don't want to change labels manually.

Any help is welcome !
